[R] Sweave special token \\ from R to latex

Dear helpeRs,

I would like to specify a newline command in R and pass it to latex  
via Sweave such that it corresponds to latex' \\ command. But that  
doesn't seem to be possible. If I Sweave the \n character, it just  
makes a new line in latex but not the \\ command.

Is there a way such that the following code would result in latex in
blablabla \\ blablabla on different line

   string <- "blablabla \\ blablabla on different line"

Thanks for the help,
