Yesterday in Manacor, Rafael Nadal took the honorary kick off ahead of the Copa del Rey match between Manacor and Las Palmas.
Las Palmas competes in the highest echelon of Spanish football, La Liga, while Manacor operates in the fifth tier. Las Palmas emerged victorious with a commanding 3-0 scoreline in the match, with goals scored by Julian Araujo, Alberto Moliero, and Pau Ferrer Besalduch.
The occasion was marked by a standing ovation for Rafa, who graced the court in a sleek black suit and matching shirt, radiating his signature fitness and style.
It’s worth mentioning that Rafa’s uncle, Miguel Angel Nadal, played for Manacor from 1983 to 1986.
