Interviewed by media at the Mallorca Open, Toni Nadal spoke about the Zika Virus that has had many athletes, who are going to be participating in the Rio Games, in August, worried. 'We already played ATP Rio there on February and we are not worried about this.
We did not follow any specific treatment. Is Rafa going to freeze his sperm? I do not know, you will have to ask him,' said Toni. Pau Gasol, Spanish basketball player has said that he would freeze his sperm if he decides on playing the Rio Olympics, while American cyclist Tejay Van Garderen has pulled out of the Games because of the prevalence of the virus.
Speaking about this a few months ago, Andy Murray had said, 'I wasn’t worried about it to be honest but a lot of people have been talking about it in the last few days. I saw 100 scientists saying it would be unethical if it were to go on there.
It is something I will speak to a couple of doctors about to get some advice. I plan to go, for sure, but I need to get a little bit more information before making a decision.'
