Rafael Nadal and Uncle Toni honoured in Mallorca

No, Rafael Nadal's uncle Miguel Ángel, a former pro football player, wasn't proposing to his nephew to move from tennis to football.

During half time of the Spanish league match between Mallorca and Racing de Santander, Matéu Alemany, one of the league’s directors awarded Nadal with a medal as a symbol for his incredible success in tennis.

Uncle Toni was also honoured and received his medal.

Matéu said the reason for the award was because of “the amazing journey they’ve had together in their professional careers, which has taken them to the top of the world rankings and has made Rafa the best Spanish sportsman in history”.
