Leo Messi and Rafael Nadal are candidates for the Laureus Academy Athlete of the Year title.

Yesterday (Tuesday), the two found time to recommend each other for winning the title, in a special sporting act.

The decorated tennis player, who won two Grand Slam titles last year - in Australia and at Roland Garros - posted a story in which he wrote who he thought should receive the award: "Come on Leo Messi, you deserve it."

The Argentinian, who, as I recall, led his team to an incredible victory in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, did not ignore the compliment of the bull from Majorca, and wrote to him in response: "When an athlete as great as you crowns me, it leaves me speechless. Thank you very much, Rafa Nadal, you also deserve everything For the way you compete every time you step on the field. You're the winner, but we've still got a lot of competition out there, huh? Everyone deserves a Laureus award this year, really."

Along with these two superstars, the candidates for the title are PSG striker and world runner-up with France, Kylian Mbappe, Formula 1 champion, Max Verstappen, NBA champion with the Golden State Warriors, Steph Curry, and world record holder in pole vaulting , the Swedish Mundo Duplantis.
