Rafael Nadal’s back may still not be 100%, but the World No. 1 hasn’t lost his charm. Nadal arrived into Rio de Janeiro’s Galeao Airport last night where he was greeted by hordes of fans.

Among them was student named Barbara Brum who after a five hours of anxious waiting finally got up close and personal with her idol Nadal. And the experience left her shaking and in tears.

Here’s the video:

Nadal will play his first match at the inaugural Rio Open on Wednesday.
