A glittering summit. Carlos Alcaraz celebrated his 20th birthday just last Friday, and has already conquered the tennis world. The Spaniard, who among other things became the youngest ranked number one in the world, is marked as the potential successor to the big three - Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic - and never stops conquering new heights.
On Monday, the Spaniard added another prestigious title to his cabinet after being crowned Discovery of the Year at the prestigious Lorius Awards. The winner of the athlete of the year was Leo Messi, and their meeting on the red carpet broke the net.
