Tennis legend Rafael Nadal may be sidelined from the tennis circuit due to a foot injury, but he is keeping the competitive juices flowing in another sporting code.
It is well known that Nadal is an avid golfer and he took part in a charity golf event in his hometown of Mallorca at the weekend.
And it came as no surprise that the competitive Spaniard ended up winning the Robinson Classic charity event at the Vall D’Or Golf de Mallorca.
The event was held for the benefit of the Rafa Nadal Foundation and €41 569 was raised.
Nadal recently called time on his tennis season due to a persistent foot injury.
It’s known that the Spaniard has struggled with Müller-Weiss Syndrome. The condition had flared up in his French Open semi-final defeat to Novak Djokovic in June and subsequently saw him miss Wimbledon.
Nadal played the Washington ATP 500-level event last month but lost his second match there to South Africa’s Lloyd Harris.
He then pulled out of the Toronto and Cincinnati Masters 1000 events before calling it quits for the remainder of the year.
