Rafael Nadal has expressed his sadness at the devastating fire engulfing Notre Dame cathedral this evening.

Notre Dame was constructed in 1163 during the reign of King Louis VII and was completed in 1345. The cathedral is a worldwide Parisian icon, receiving 12 to 13 million visitors a year.

The iconic building was undergoing renovations to a tune of €6 million when a fire broke out shortly after 7pm local time.

Rafa posted on Twitter:

Going to sleep still under shock with the images we see in Paris.

All my support to all Parisians and French people and authorities.


  1. So sad about this – it’s frightening that 850 years of history can just go like that, on what started out as a perfectly ordinary day. It was such a beautiful building. At least the main structure was saved, and it’s a miracle that no-one was killed.

  2. Really a big disaster what happened with the Norte Dame yesrerday. The fire department is doing a great job to protect the facade of the building.

  3. What an awful disaster. Only Go d knows why these things happen. My heart is with the Christians of France. God bless you.
