bosqueLEGENDARY Spanish football coach Vicente del Bosque has been awarded for his work with disabled people.

The town of La Albuera declared the ex-Real Madrid player the recipient of their Adalid Peace, Freedom and Solidarity award.

The 65-year-old guided Spain to World Cup glory in 2010 and helped them defend their European championship title in 2012.

Del Bosque has long supported the disabled, and is a sponsor and ´godfather´ of the Roosevelt Association – a group that has been working for the rights and opportunities for people with physical disabilities since 1989.
