A Twitter user quipped: “In absolute bits at Rafael Nadal’s headband tan lines like god love him he looks like he’s stayed over the girlfriend’s and accidentally washed his face with a tanning mitt?”

Nadal wants to defend his Australian Open title, so that puts having Children on hold for at least another year.

The Spaniard has been dating his wife Xisca Perello since 2005, but the pair didn’t tie the knot until 2020.

And Nadal is open to the idea of having children once his playing career is over.

He said: “I would love to have children: boys, girls… I’m a person who loves kids and I’m a family guy.

“But also I tell you that the reality is, the years keep passing, I would like to start to do all of this when my sporting life determines it.”
