Spain's Rafael Nadal has helped flood victims in his native Majorca by opening his tennis academy on the island to the homeless and assisting clear mud and water. The world number one was taken aback by the events which unfolded in his native town and even took participation in the cleanliness programme with a broom in hand.
Nadal said, "Sad day in Majorca. My sincere condolences to the relatives of the deceased."
As per reports, at least 10 people have died in the floods. Nadal has allowed those needing shelter to stay in his academy.
The Spaniard opened his academy in 2016 and it hosted a second-tier Challenger event in August.
