Rafael Nadal Pauses Tennis Match To Help Mother Find Her Missing Child [Watch]

Top tennis player Rafael Nadal paused a tennis match so a mother in the audience could find her lost daughter.



If you need a dose of positive news to rekindle some faith in humanity, look no further. Rafael Nadal might be a top tennis player, but he also appears to be a humble guy who is willing to help others when the opportunity is presented.

During a recent match against Spaniard Carlos Moya and American tennis player John McEnroe, Rafael paused the game to ensure a mother in the crowd could find her missing daughter. According to the video (below) produced by IB3 NOTÍCIES, he stopped playing so the crowd could help find the young girl and return the child to her mother. Afterward, he continued the match as if nothing had happened.

This kind of compassion, integrity, and humility is rarely witnessed – especially by individuals who seemingly ‘have it all’. Fortunately for the mother, her daughter, and fans around the world, Nadal set a positive example others might follow.

A great takeaway from this story is that one is never too busy to help another in need. If Nadal can postpone a tennis match to example sportsmanship and spread compassion, you can open the door for someone else or send a nice message to a friend who needs some encouragement.
