After winning 6 titles in 2017, including the French Open (for a record 10th time) and the US Open, Rafa Nadal was named Spain’s athlete of the year for 2017. This is the 4th time Nadal has won this honour.
He defeated the likes of Kilian Jornet , Marc Márquez, Toni Bou, Lucas Eguibar and Sergio García to win the award.
“I am very happy and grateful to Mundo Deportivo for having thought of me for the prize,” Nadal said. “The truth is that this place is special and very beautiful and ideal to celebrate a night of sports. I’ve been winning and not winning, but someone has to win.”
Nadal also provided an injury update at the event, reiterating that he will be back for the Mexican Open which will begin on 26th February.
