On Thursday afternoon, a van rammed into a crowd of people in Barcelona, killing 13 people and injuring at least 100, CNN reported. It’s the worst attack on Spanish soil since the 2004 Madrid bombings, which killed 191 people and injured more than 1,800.
Rafael Nadal, Garbiñe Muguruza, Fernando Verdasco, and David Ferrer are among the tennis players who have been sending messages of condolence.
Rafa posted his messages of support in Spanish which translated means: “Shattered by what has happened in Barcelona! All my support to affected families and the city.”
Our thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by this tragedy.
Prayers for all the victims and their Families in Barcelona Spain, may God heal their Hearts and minds from all the Pain that this sad incident has caused Stop the hate please so sad.
