IKER CASILLAS - XAVI HERNANDEZ WIN "PREMIO PRINCIPE DE ASTURIAS"

The "Premio Principe de Asturias" , is the equivalent of the "Nobel Prize" for Spanish speaking Nations. There are many categories - Social Sciences, Medicine, Literatura, Arts  etc - & it is not shut to only Spanish speaking persons or organizations, as many non-Spaniards have been awarded like Woody Allen, Norman Foster, Google, Al Gore, Paul Krugman & Bob Dylan, just to mention a few.

This year the "Sports Award" has being handed  to Spanish Football players IKER CASILLAS & XAVI HERNANDEZ for their contribution to Sport, Spanish Football History & for being exemplary models for the youth.  These two players have been pivotal in the success of the Spanish National Football Team in winning back to back European Titles & the first ever FIFA World Cup Title. Apart from this they symbolize an off the field "friendship" & Sportsmanship that  sets  an example to all even though both represent & defend different Club colours locally in which the rivalry has been so fierce the last couple of years that it has bordered on violence
