Rafael Nadal says nothing will keep him away from Rio Olympic Games

The passion for tennis is much more than fear of any disease or injury to the Spanish tennis ace Rafael Nadal.

He has expressed his love for Olympic Games by saying that he had no intention of missing out on the Olympic Games starting from August 5 in Rio de Janeiro despite battling a wrist injury and fears over the Zika virus.

It is noticed that Nadal has not played since withdrawing from the French Open in May because he had a wrist injury.

He said the thing which motivated him most is that he has been chosen to carry the Spanish flag in the Rio opening ceremony.

This is what he was set to do four years ago in the London 2012 Olympics before injury forced him out.

On asking about the life threatning disease Zika virus, the Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal said "a situation which is a long way from reality," had been created about the virus.

"I was in Rio in February and I led a perfectly normal life," explained the 30-year-old.

So we cheers the passion of Nadal for his games.
