FLYING HIGH: Rafa in the cockpit

RAFAEL Nadal snapped a photo with his pilots before flying home to Spain this week.

It comes after the Mallorquin had to pull out of the ATP World Tour finals with a knee injury.

He posted a picture with his pilots in the cockpit of the Air Europe flight online.

He said: “Lucky to have met the pilots that will fly us back home after the holidays. Thanks #Aireuropa!”

The picture got more than 15,000 likes and led to some strange theories from Nadal-obsessed supporters.
The crux of their odds beliefs appeared to be the fact Nadal, a 16-time Grand Slam champion, was so talented he could fly the plane himself.

One wrote: “Hope you had a great holiday Rafa, safe home, so boring without tennis, it would not surprise me if you where able to fly the plane home again, as you can do anything and everything.”
