1. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) RAFAEL NADAL, SAYING:
"Hello everyone. Given everything, I hope you are ok and that the situation is getting better bit by bit for all those affected. And just that we get out of this the best and fastest way possible. As you know, the ACB is hosting a benefit auction for the Red Cross Responds project which right now the gifts they're getting have been great and for this auction I want to donate the shirt I used when I won the 2019 Roland Garros (French Open) - I don't know if it's the exact shirt I wore in the match, but one of the four or five I played with on the day of the final. It's a t-shirt that means a lot to me and I hope that you value it and that it goes at auction at the highest price possible so we can give the greatest amount of money to all those people who are suffering so much and need our help. A big hug, keep up the fight."
STORY: Rafa Nadal is auctioning a shirt he wore when he won the 2019 French Open to raise money for the Spanish Red Cross' fight against the coronavirus.
Nadal posted a video to his Instagram account along with the hashtag #NuestraMejorVictoria (#ourbiggestvictory) in which he says he hopes the shirt will fetch the highest price possible so as to benefit people in need.
The world number two Nadal was looking to win a record-extending 13th French Open title this year, which would have put him level with Roger Federer on 20 Grand Slam singles titles.
However, the year's second Grand Slam was postponed from its May start to Sept. 20-Oct. 4 due to the pandemic.
Some 146,690 people have been infected by the coronavirus in Spain and 14,555 have died.
