The world tennis number one Rafa Nadal says his Spanish compatriots victory in the World Cup final is unrepeatable

Nadal, who is a keen football fan, was at the Johannesburg Stadium to watch Andres Iniesta score in the second period of extra time to give the European champions a 1-nil victory over the Netherlands and their first world title.

He says this is a generation of players that will never be matched and the dramatic win should be celebrated for a whole year.

Nadal missed Spain's Davis Cup loss to France to attend the final.
