Tennis star Rafael Nadal wins a live charity poker tournament in Prague by beating the likes of Ronaldo and Andriy Shevchenko.

World number one tennis star Rafael Nadal came out on top in a charity poker tournament in Prague on Thursday.

The Spaniard managed to see off number one-ranked poker player Daniel Negreanu, as well as Alberto Tomba, retired footballers Ronaldo and Andriy Shevchenko, and Dutch field hockey champion Fatima Moreira de Melo in the final.

"I had fun," said Nadal after the game. "I had a great experience here playing with friends, playing for a good cause, for charity. The next thing I know is that tomorrow morning I will be on court at 9am practising tennis."

The charity game was the first time that the 27-year-old had competed in a live poker event.
