Rafael Nadal steps onto court in pink short shorts and the internet is suddenly sweating

Befitting the vernal season, Spanish tennis champ Rafael Nadal stepped out onto the court recently in some pink Nike shorts, causing gay Twitter to lose its breath for a moment.

The rather tight apparel is part of his collaboration with the brand. Nadal was playing against Federico Delbonis, and we’re guessing you didn’t come here to read who won.

A thirsty tweet featuring a photo of Nadal quickly made the rounds.

“Nike needs a Nobel peace prize for these shorts, my man is on fiiiiire,” it read.

Over on Nike’s website, the shorts look a bit…different.

Now if they’d only swap out those photos with ones of Nadal, they’d have another hit product.
