ONE of Spain’s greatest golfers has called for peace amidst rising tensions in Catalunya.
Speaking from his home in Florida, Sergio Garcia pleaded for people to come together following a recent rally in Barcelona that saw 750,000 protesters take to the streets demanding the release of the separatist leaders.
“As a Spaniard, I think that there’s so many bad things happening in the world, it feels wrong to separate each other,” said Garcia.
“It is a touchy subject. I’m not a politician and I’m not going to start being one but I think everybody getting closer to one another will make this world a better place.”
The 37-year-old recently celebrated his 32nd victory, as host, for the Andalucia Valderrama Masters.
