Bishop Vidal told the athletes:

“Your example is important. Be witnesses that in life, to triumph, one must surrender, and this is the result of joint effort. You are an important testimony to young people. I encourage you to give good examples that will help make a world more supportive. Our Lady shares the joy of all the madrilenhos; share your joy. “

In turn, Florentino Perez, president of Real Madrid, said:

“This Madrid is a family. Values ​​are pillars in the pursuit of success. “
