Rafa does social media:
- Rafa let us know that he was spending a final day in London before heading to Sevilla: English and Spanish. Sadly he reverted on two fronts: he used the same photo for each post; he’s in the shadows in said photo. We like to see you in the sun Rafa – need to know those balls are getting energized. ;)
