Lewis also confirmed that the big screen at Wimbledon is reserved for tennis, the BBC reports.

Federer, who cruised through to the quarter-final of the men's competition on Monday, said he was not anxious about the football disrupting Sunday's final.

Spectators at the event will now be able to watch England take on Croatia in the semi-finals Wednesday, a game that takes place during evening matches at Wimbledon.

England have progressed to their first World Cup semi-final since 1990.

Knight's death came just days after 27-year-old Tyler Honeycutt fatally shot himself during a standoff with police on Friday. TMZ Sports reported Knight could've been sentenced for more than 50 years if he had been found guilty of all charges.

Seven-time Wimbledon victor Serena Williams said after progressing to today's quarter-finals: "Seeing all the English get so excited, you can't help but root for the team".

The final will be played at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

According to respondents, with the two finals coinciding with one another, only 8 per cent of those watching the tennis state they are prepared to stick with the coverage should the match run over into the start of the World Cup final.

He continued: "We are a sold-out event and there's massive interest".

The rules of entry to the grounds of SW19 had previously stated that devices "must be switched off in and around the courts of play", although the rules appear to have been relaxed with England on the verge of reaching a historic final.

Lewis added that tennis fans are welcome to follow the football final online with their preferred devices, but they must do so in a respectable manner.
