Real Madrid fans unveiled an enormous banner in homage to Rafael Nadal at the Bernabeu
Tennis star Nadal was the centre-piece of a huge tribute unveiled at the Bernabeu before Real Madrid’s match against Paris Saint-Germain.
The 10-time French Open winner is thought to have been chosen to remind the 4,000 visiting fans of the Spaniard’s dominance in their home city.
Fan group Grada Fans RCMCF are said to have organised the display because they believe Nadal is the embodiment of “Madridism”.
The 31-year-old has previously attended Real Madrid matches and been introduced to supporters on the pitch.
PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot stunned the home crowd with the opening goal, although Cristiano Ronaldo equalised from the penalty spot just before half-time.
