(EFE) Rafael Nadal spent some time Thursday morning at a tennis court near a shantytown in the Argentine capital, hitting the ball around with area children in an event also attended by Buenos Aires’ mayor and local sports officials.

The event took place at the San Lorenzo sporting club, located in the Villa Soldati district of Buenos Aires’ southwest side, where the 14-time Grand Slam champion said it was a pleasure to take time out for the visit with the young people because “they are the future and have something special.”
