Rafael Nadal said on Friday that he had no intention of missing out of the forthcoming Olympic Games despite battling a wrist injury and fears over the Zika virus.
“It has not entered my head not to be in Rio,” Rafa said at an event in his home town of Manacor in Mallorca.
He was asked of the threat of the Zika virus, which has led several Spanish athletes, such as basketball ace, Pau Gasol to express their concerns. but the tennis star said “a situation which is a long way from reality,” had been created about the virus.
“I was in Rio in February and I led a perfectly normal life,” explained Rafa.
