Rafael Nadal has been voted as the ideal boss in a survey of 4,917 Spaniards with 45 percent of the polled audience picking the 22-time Grand Slam champion as their top choice.

The survey was carried out by InfoJobs on the occasion of International Bosses’ Day, on October 16.

The attributes Nadal that got the most votes were his humility (by 58 percent), his honesty and reliability (by 50 percent) and his passion (by 48 percent).

Margarita del Val, the virologist from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), came in second place in the poll with 33 percent of the votes.

Jeff Bezos, the founder and Chief Executive Office of Amazon, came in third place, with 24 percent of the votes.

Uncle Toni confident that Rafael Nadal will be able to juggle fatherhood and career

Meanwhile, Nadal is already getting used to a new role, that of being a first-time father. The Spaniard acknowledged the good news for the first time in a post on social media on Thursday.

“Hello everyone. After a few days and many loving messages, I just wanted to thank you all! We are very happy and everyone is very well! A big hug!!”

Meanwhile, in an interview published by Majorca Daily Bulletin, Toni Nadal, the former long-time coach and uncle of Rafael Nadal, said he is confident that the 36-year-old would be able to juggle fatherhood with his career like all other athletes do.

“He will do this totally normally. He’s not a special guy, as all footballers and many others do this. When he first has to go to Australia, it will be hard to be away, but in the end, it is the price you have to pay,” Toni Nadal said.
