Iker and Xavi award date set

Real Madrid’s Iker Casillas and Barcelona Xavi Hernandez will receive the Prince of Asturias award for Sport this Friday, it has been confirmed.

The duo, who were nominated by FIFA President Sepp Blatter, were announced in September as joint recipients of the award, which recognises ‘individuals, entities or organizations from around the world who make notable achievements in their field’.

Casillas and Xavi will now be presented with the award this Friday afternoon in Oviedo, where they will also meet up with the year’s other award winners from different fields.
