Twitter Reacts after Rafael Nadal shows fantastic sportsmanship!

Rafael Nadal checks on Nicolas Almagro

Rafael Nadal is known for his sportsmanship and it was again on display recently when he faced fellow Spaniard Nicolas Almagro at the Rome Open.

The crowd didn’t see much of Nadal’s skills against Almagro, but they did see a lovely gesture from the star. When Almagro began to feel his knee injury, Nadal approached him to check he was okay.

He then walked with his compatriot as Almagro began walking back to his chair. Nadal also clapped his opponent as he exited the court.
