Zverev announces that he is diabetic and launches his foundation to help the sick

It was a well-kept secret. The German Alexander Zverev was recently diabetic and took the opportunity to announce the launch of his foundation, the “Alexander Zverev Foundation”. Its goal will be to help people with diabetes, especially those who do not have access to the necessary care.

If a diabetic child is not treated, he dies, whereas one can lead a perfectly normal and fortunate life with the right treatment. I want to help provide the necessary equipment to those who need it and allow these children to live a long life. “said the 25-year-old tennis player.

“There are no limits except those you impose on yourself”

Alexander Zverev’s message to people with diabetes

Affected since the age of three and a half, the reigning Olympic champion is ready to assume his difference and wants to show people, through his example, that anything is possible: “ With this foundation, I want to send the message to parents and children around the world that there are no limits except those that you impose on yourself. “.

On the sporting side, the double winner of the Masters is still treating his triple ligament rupture in the ankle which occurred against Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals of Roland-Garros. He hopes to return for the group stage of the Davis Cup in Hamburg in mid-September.
