Children in Majorca have launched an appeal asking the Government to allow tennis ace, Rafa Nadal to start playing again.

Under a platform with the hashtag #RafaPlayNow they wrote "can play tennis again because he deserves it."

Like all other athletes in Spain, Rafa is confined to his house and cannot train and there was controversy when he recently declared publicly that like many other people in Spain who have already been allowed to return to their jobs, he would like to get back to work and train on a tennis court.

Nadal pointed out that tennis is a game with many metres of separation between players so there is no health risk to him or others.

The citizen movement has released a video on Instagram asking the Spanish Government to allow Rafa Nadal to be authorisatised to start training in Manacor immediately.

There is still risk if both players are touching the same ball. Add to that the number of times Nadal touches his face and it isn’t very safe at all. Does he really want to be responsible for possibly carrying the virus home and infecting his wife and family?
