Rafael Nadal has confirmed that he will represent Spain at the Olympic Games in Rio, despite injury concerns.

The 30-year-old, who has not played since the French Open in May, will compete in the men’s singles and also take part with Marc López in the doubles and Garbiñe Muguruza in the mixed doubles.

Nadal’s recovery would come as a significant boost for tennis at the Games with several other high-profile players missing, including the likes of Roger Federer, Stan Wawrinka and Wimbledon finalist Milos Raonic.
