And he added: “The desire to live, the self-love, the love of the family, the support of friends, each little thing contributes in this hard process… today I received the most tender hug, sincere and full of love. Right at the moment most crucially bringing the strength and recharge I needed to be able to get this over with and to be able to say WE DID IT…”.

Gómez accompanied the message with a photograph hugging his son, the 2019 Tour de France champion, who was recently operated on by the doctor Manuel Ignacio Gutiérrez. The professional stated that the operation was a complete success.
