The Spanish tennis player Rafa Nadal expressed his concern about the “disasters” that the coronavirus pandemic is causing around the world and hoped that, “little by little”, we will be able to get out of a situation that is leading us to “extreme circumstances” .
During his participation as ambassador of Banco Santander in “LaLiga Santander Fest”, the solidarity macroconcert that aims to raise funds for the fight against COVID-19, the number two in world tennis explained from his home in Manacor (Mallorca) -where he remains confined – who is trying to adapt to a situation that is also new to him and that has “surpassed” everyone.
“I see it like everyone else, first with concern to see all the disasters that we see every day on television and adapting to this new circumstance for all of us that has overtaken us, I think,” he explained when asked by the presenters of the event about the repercussions of the pandemic.
Regarding the confinement decreed in many countries to stop the spread of the coronavirus, he said: “The reality is that, like all changes in this life, you have to adapt and it takes a while, and hopefully it won’t give us to fully adapt and that little little by little we will get out of this virus that is taking us to extreme circumstances ».
Artists of the stature of Alejandro Sanz, David Bisbal or Juanes have joined this Saturday with well-known LaLiga Santander players, the highest category of Spanish football, in a solidarity event broadcast in 180 countries from their different homes to raise funds in the fight against COVID -19 and, incidentally, accompany the fans who are still confined to their homes.
More than fifty artists and footballers, among which stand out some of the stature of Gerard Piqué and Ivan Rakitic (Barcelona), Sergio Ramos and Lucas Vázquez (Real Madrid), Saúl (Atlético de Madrid), Dani Parejo and Rodrigo Moreno ( Valencia) or Joaquín Sánchez (Betis), participate in this initiative.
The funds raised with “LaLiga Santander Fest” will be used to purchase the necessary products to combat the pandemic and will be channeled following the health priorities of the Spanish Government in coordination with the Higher Sports Council (CSD). EFE
