Over 200 children received a visit from the Whites' former captain.
The former captain of the Real Madrid basketball team, Felipe Reyes, who announced his retirement on 24 June, returned to Real Madrid City to visit the children who are taking part in the Real Madrid Foundation's summer basketball camp. The basketball team's record appearance maker is involved in the Foundation's educational programme, which also supports the educational initiatives run by the Felipe Reyes Academy.
The more than 200 youngsters who are enjoying the campus across the various age group welcomed Reyes, who represents a role model in the values of madridismo for the youngsters, with a round of applause. Felipe was joined by the head of the basketball department, Javier Arizcun; and the director of the Foundation's National Department, Silvia Montes-Jovellar, who commented that the visit "represents a great example and is a great source of motivation for all the participants in the various basketball camps". Reyes spoke to all of the children and posed for photos with each bubble as he declared that: "What gives me the biggest joy is to see children playing basketball again. That's the most important thing".
