Rafael Nadal has responded to a leak of his confidential medical data after he was one of a number of athletes targeted by a group of Russian hackers.
Here’s what Rafa said:
It is a private matter which does not need to be private. No need for a hacker to deliver it. It would be good for everyone. If every time you successfully do a doping test, [and] it’s announced and the results are published, it would finish all these discussions and all be transparent.
There are many things which, day to day, are banned substances, but when you ask permission and you get it, it stops being illegal … I have never taken anything to improve my sporting performance. Simply, the doctors told me to take something to improve my knee.
