We Rafa fans have been chanting “there’s only one Rafael Nadal” from the stands all these years, but it seems we are wrong.

The King of Clay has a look-alike, and his ‘long lost twin’ commonly gets mistaken for Rafa. The look-alike is a Madrid bus driver named Jose Manuel Ramiro and was caught on camera with Rafa at the Adopted Son of Madrid ceremony. Jose has even worked as Rafa’s body double on a car commercial.  If you resemble the top tennis player in the world, you’re bound to get a ton of attention, and sure enough, he says he’s been in the scrutiny of gazes everywhere he goes.
