Rafael Nadal serves up a smile for his adoring fans

Wednesday July 21, 2010

Not only is he world number one in tennis, Rafael Nadal is a top class gentleman too.

The Spanish tennis star proved he's always got time for his fans when he was surrounded by a group of excited admirers while on holiday on the Mediterranean isle of Formentera.

Though he was there to get away from it all, Rafael happily chatted to the group, before posing for a photo with them.

The 24-year-old also appeared to have been inspired by his country's storming World Cup victory as he showed off his ball skills - and buff physique - by the water's edge.

Rafa, as he likes to be known, is taking advantage of some free time in his schedule before returning to the court, for the US Open in August.
