Rafael Nadal showed support to those affected by a series of recent natural disasters, sending love to victims of the Mexico earthquake and Hurricane Irma upon winning his third US Open title on Sunday.
“I’m just sorry for all the victims, and just keep going for everybody,” Nadal said, as transcribed by CNN’s Jill Martin. “It’s very sad moments for our world, but at the moment to be strong and to fight to be back. That’s impossible to control this natural disasters, so just all the best for all the victims and to all the people that are suffering.”
A major earthquake with a magnitude of 8.1 hit Mexico on Thursday, leading to a number of deaths throughout the country. Hurricane Irma hit the Caribbean earlier this week before striking Florida on Saturday.
