Rafael Nadal made of clay is the world's most appropriate sports statue

Nadal, Nadal, Nadal ... they made him out of clay

Making athletes out of stuff is the world's new favorite thing. Subway will craft people out of sandwiches, now Nike will turn the clay of Roland Garros into one of the sport's most iconic athletes.

Rafael Claydal looks super excited, as he should be. After all he's dominated the French Open and now is immortalized. Just be sure you fire that thing, otherwise it will dry out and crumble.
