Spanish tennis ace Rafael Nadal admits Spain's World Cup triumph left him in tears.

Nadal, who has just become a shareholder in Real Mallorca, attended the final last night.

"I cried like a little boy. We have to celebrate for a whole year, because this is unbelievable. It is very difficult to repeat this," he told Marca.

"It will be crazy at home. Imagine, I was watching the semi-finals in Mallorca and I felt amazing. The whole country must be very proud."
