Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal inspire Leonardo Bonucci

The photo of Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal holding hands at the Swiss champion’s last match went viral within a very short time. The snap received an avalanche of ‘likes’ and comments, to which Leonardo Bonucci also joined in.

The Juventus central shared the image on his Instagram profile, writing, “This photo is a lesson. Not of sports. Of Life. We should look at it every day. Thank you, because even sitting on a bench, you continue to be examples to follow. So that friendship in rivalry, respect for each other, those hands you would never want to leave be a lesson for every generation.”

In the Nations League match between Italy and England, played at the San Siro on Friday night, Leonardo Bonucci churned out a very solid performance despite the quality of the opponents, who several times with Sterling and Kane tried to get past the seasoned defender and very rarely succeeded.
