Rafael Nadal: A rippling demigod slapping winners and pounding across a tennis court like a great black bull on the cobbles of Pamplona. Rafael Nadal winning grand slams at 17. Rafael Nadal being finished, but then somehow, not being finished? Not being finished at all in fact. Rafael Nadal coming back better than ever, dominating the French Open and looking like a serious contender for Wimbledon... despite everyone thinking that actually he was finished.
Rafael Nadal: totally bamboozled, befuddled and perplexed by the self-service checkout at Tesco.
Nick Roberts, Nadal's knight in shining chino shorts and boat shoes, posted up the above tweet when he spotted Rafa getting manhandled by the ever-frustrating self checkout at Tesco. A scenario we can all relate to.
Nick, who seems like a very nice man indeed, said that "It was very exciting. He bought a 6 pack of Diet Coke. Didn't need a bag. Environmentally conscious and awesome at tennis."
"Oh, and he was lovely with everyone in there. I hope he doesn't mind that I've tweeted about this. I was just really excited!"
It turns out that Rafa doesn't mind one bit, as he thanked Nick for his assistance.
What a very nice interaction all round.
