Alvaro wrote a letter to his father on his 70th birthday, which is today, to be published in the newspaper, with the idea being to celebrate the World Cup winner’s milestone in a special way.
They live together on the Costa del Sol, with father and son reportedly inseparable on those quiet mornings by the Mediterranean Sea.
“Alvaro has been a blessing and we wouldn’t know how to live without him,” Vicente said before.
The love is reciprocal, as evidenced in the touching letter handwritten by Alvaro.
“I love him so much,” he wrote. “I have so much fun with him talking about football. I laugh with him”. Vicente is “the best father in the world,” according to Alvaro
