WATCH: The eyes say it all as Rafael Nadal sends Neymar’s son a video message
The son of Brazilian football great Neymar could not contain his excitement as he received a message from tennis legend Rafael Nadal.
In an enchanting video posted on Neymar’s Instagram account, his young boy Davi Lucca was jumping with joy as he received a personalised video message from the world No.3.
“Davi Lucca, how are you?” Nadal said in the video as the youngster’s face quickly turned to shock.
“I heard that you came to watch one of my matches recently.
“I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to greet you, but with the virus around it was impossible. Hopefully when this is all over, you can come back and we can meet properly some day. Sending a big kiss.”

Many kids around the world would have a similar reaction if Neymar sent them a video, but the roles were reversed as Nadal took the chance to make a young man’s dream come true.
