Rafael Nadal strode out onto the tennis court in a pair of incredible shorts recently, and some people think Nike deserve a Nobel Prize for this gift to humanity.

The tennis player wore pink shorts from his collaboration with the brand at a match against Federico Delbonis, but we’re not sure people were concentrating on the game itself.

Following the match a number of Twitter users noticed Rafael Nadal’s very flattering shorts at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters, where he was serving “leg and booty.”

The tweet which kicked off the thirst said: “Nike needs a Nobel peace prize for these shorts, my man is on fiiiiire.”


It then received hundreds of hilarious responses including the classic, “I’m gonna give the gays everything they want” gif.

Another said: “I just feel like rafa should have been a gay man. Only a gay man is equipped to handle a man with such a lower half. That’s just my opinion.”

Others felt it was unfair to gay people adding: “Straight men have no need for an absolute dump truck like this.”

Someone else noted that he’d stepped up his outfit game, both on and off the court, saying: “The fact that for years he wore CAPRI PANTS is deeply offensive but this makes up for it.”

Also, plenty of people wanted to look as good as Nadal in the Nike shorts and were wondering where they could buy the shorts for themselves.

As one Twitter user simply put: “What’s the link. I want my booty to be perked up like that!”.

Well if you’re wondering where you can get these pink shorts from then they’re available from the Nike website.

The Dri-FIT shorts are part of the Rafa collection and are priced at £59.95 in sizes XS to 3XL, and clearly the brand doesn’t need to do much advertising for them…

To rep the shorts yourself and serve some leg and booty you can get them from Nike here.
