Rafael Nadal has one of the world’s most recognizable faces, particularly if he’s walking on the grounds of a tennis center and holding a racquet.
But there’s one guy who didn’t realize who he was talking to, and he was caught on camera: A security guard at the Paris Masters.
Watch the moment unfold toward the end of this video:
The guard asks him for a pass, and when Nadal says he doesn’t have one, the guard asks who he was. So the tennis legend simply drops a “Rafael Nadal.” That, of course, worked.
This is certainly not to shame the guard. He’s doing his job. Credit also goes to Nadal, who was polite about the whole thing and could have pulled the “do you know who I am!?” card but didn’t.
All of that said, that’s a pretty funny moment right there.
