Twitter user ‘very excited’ to assist Rafael Nadal at self-service checkout

“Unexpected superstar in baggage area…”

Rafael Nadal might be the king of clay but he is yet to prove his credentials against a far more British foe, the self-service checkout machine.

Twitter user Nick Roberts posted a photo of the 10-time French Open champion with the caption: “Just done Rafa Nadal’s shopping for him on the self-service tills on the Tesco Express in Wimbledon village. Surreal.”

He added: “It was very exciting. He bought a 6 pack of Diet Coke.

“Didn’t need a bag. Environmentally conscious and awesome at tennis.”

Spanish player Nadal is scheduled to play third on Centre Court on Wednesday, after defending champion Andy Murray.
