Novak Djokovic, the champion Serbian tennis player, has bought the world's entire supply of donkey cheese.

Pule is a Serbian delicacy made with donkey's milk.

It is said to be the world's most expensive cheese, which makes Djokovic's bill all the more exorbitant.

The crumbly, white cheese sells for 1000 euros ($1233) a kilogram, but it's unclear exactly how much the Australian Open winner has bought.

Djokovic is behind a new chain of restaurants set to open in his home country and he wanted to shore up enough to guarantee continued supply.

Pule has just one producer, a farm about an hour west of Belgrade, and each kilogram requires 25 litres of donkey milk.

The farm's manager, Slobodan Simic, said the secret to the taste was that the donkeys were raised on one of the country's famous wildlife and nature reserves.

"It will save a lot of effort having to deal with various restaurants, with only one customer buying the lot we don't have to worry too much about salesmen," Mr Simic told the UK Daily Telegraph of Djokovic's extraordinary purchase.

I was just telling my wife the other day, "You know, I could go for a bagel with donkey cheese.. regular cream cheese is just so pedestrian." Another dream dashed to pieces... [i]this[/i] is why I hate tennis players.

I've never had donkey cheese but goat cheese is excellent. May have to give it a try.
