In an event organized by Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, country’s top tennis players Rafael Nadal and Garbine Muguruza were named the best male and female sportsman of the year, respectively, for their achievements in 2017.

Nadal, who won two off the four Grand Slams to extend his tally to 16 Majors last year, denied MotoGP rider Marc Marquez and golfer Sergio Garcia to bag the top honour.

Muguruza, on the other hand, pulled off the Wimbledon crown – her second Slam overall – last season.

The duo later took to its official social media accounts to share their pictures from the gala.

“Very grateful to Mundo Deportivo for the Best Sportsman of the year award with Garbiñe Muguruza … and above all congratulations for the 70th anniversary of this media #mundodeportivo #Barcelona #grangalamundodeportivo # deporteistadelaño,” Nadal captioned a picture of himself holding the trophy.

Muguruza posted a snap alongside Nadal, and simply wrote: “Best athletes of 2017.”

Mejores atletas 2017! Best athletes of 2017! ???????????????????? ????
