Canadian tennis player Vasek Pospisil has another achievement to add to his resume. The BNP Indian Wells tournament organizers have named a sandwich after him, called the Vasek Pospisil Chicken Panini.

A tweet from the BNP Paribas Open official account provided all the details. A photo of the menu reveals the ingredients of the sandwich to be sourdough bread, toasted and topped with grilled chicken, cheddar cheese, tomatoes and Applewood smoked bacon.

Pospisil earned this distinguished honour after winning the men’s doubles side of the tournament last year with his partner, American Jack Sock. This year, Pospisil and Sock will next face German Philip Kohlschreiber and Austrian Dominic Thiem in the quarter-finals.
