With almost 60,000 cases and 4300 deaths due to a coronavirus, Spain is one of the most affected countries by the new pandemic that has taken 24,000 lives so far around the world. The Spanish doctors can’t control the virus at the moment and they need help they can possibly gain.

World no. 2 and the most celebrated Spanish athlete ever, Rafael Nadal is ready to help his country together with his friend Pau Gasol and other stars from the individual and team sports, hoping to raise 11,000,000 euros and offer help to more than a million people.

“In this situation, which is totally new for everyone, after giving it further thought, I have come to the conclusion that you, the Spanish people, have never failed us, the athletes. You have always been by our side in happy moments and in difficult times.

Rafael Nadal

You have always had an understanding with us when things have not gone well, but when things have gone well you have always been there celebrating with all of us. I think that athletes are what we are in large part thanks to your support, and now is the time that athletes have to help you.

That’s why I decided to call my friend Pau. Together we came to the conclusion of starting this initiative to which we trust that all Spanish sport will unite and give a good example of unity. We are teaming up with the Red Cross Respond project.

The objective is clear: To raise 11 million Euros for helping around 1,350,000 people. We trust that all Spanish athletes will come together and support the initiative to achieve our goal. Pau and I have already made our donation. We rely on you because surely this is going to be our best victory.”
