MARIA Sharapova, a five-time grand slam winner and former world number 1, is on a visit to Rwanda, reportedly since Sunday.

The global tennis star visited the majestic mountain gorillas in Kinigi, Musanze District, on Tuesday.

Despite an injury-prone career, Sharapova has achieved a rare level of longevity in women's tennis, having won at least one singles title a year from 2003 until 2015, a streak only bested by three players; Steffi Graf, Martina Navratilova, and Chris Evert. 

Sharapova is the latest star athlete to visit the mountain gorillas in Rwanda after Arsenal defender David Luiz last month.
