Rafa Nadal kissed a “super brave” ball girl and said sorry after smashing a stray ball at her face by mistake at the Australian Open.
Seconds later hearts began to melt as Nadal rushed to check on the wellbeing of the youngster and planted a kiss on her cheek.
The next day the world melted all over again when Nadal uploaded a photo to his Instagram account alongside the young ball girl, Anita, with the caption saying he also met her family.
“Very happy to see that Anita is doing well,” Nadal captioned the photo.
“I also had the chance to meet her, her brother Mark and parents. Thank you.”
Fans couldn’t get enough of the pair and their heartwarming interactions and on Saturday morning ahead of play on day 6, Anita was once again back in the limelight appearing on Channel 9’s Today show.
