Sport: Ten-time individual sporting champions

PARIS, , (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News, app - 10th Jun, 2017 ) - Rafael Nadal is aiming to win a record 10th French Open title against Stan Wawrinka in Sunday's final. AFP sports takes a look at an elite group of other athletes with 10 or more titles in the same event: The legendary Boston Celtics centre won a record 11 NBA championships as the franchise dominated the league in the late 1950s and throughout the 1960s.

Russell, now 83, notably operated as player-coach during his final two title-winning seasons in 1968 and 1969. He was voted the NBA's Most Valuable Player five times and later inducted into the Hall of Fame. Team-mate Sam Jones, drafted after Boston's 1957 triumph, teamed up with Russell to win 10 of those 11 titles.
