Almost all the great athletes of the last 40 years of Spanish sport have passed through his bus. Nacho Calvo posted his micro on RTVE this Sunday. His voice was the one that told the tennis matches "as if he were glued to the net," said RTVE's video tribute to the voice that has spent a lifetime narrating RTVE's sport.
The broadcast of the Mutua Madrid Open final on La 1 was the moment chosen by Nacho Calvo to say goodbye. After Alcaraz's victory, RTVE connected with the journalist and dedicated an unexpected tribute to him that moved the editor.
The one who has been the main voice of tennis on RTVE in the last four decades is retiring and, although it was something expected, it has been a surprise for many viewers. "Thank you all, really, I will also take you and remember you in my heart. And I will never forget what I have learned from you and from many other colleagues in the basketball broadcasts, in the tennis broadcasts", declared an emotional Nacho Calvo after hearing the words of affection from many of his colleagues.
And it is that Nacho Calvo has also been the voice of basketball in the sports broadcasts of the public channel and was one of the veterans in the coverage of the Olympic Games along with other mythical names such as Paloma del Río, who has also closed his stage on RTVE .
"I have been able to fulfill my dream as a boy. I wanted to be a sports commentator to follow in the footsteps of those I saw when I stuck to the television with my father. Thanks to my colleagues, who have been friends. I will remember the 40 years I have spent in RTVE", he assured in his emotional goodbye.
