It means very much for me to receive this prize. I am extremely proud and grateful. I want to thank all my team-mates in my club and national team, but also my family, who have always been there for me in wet and dry. You really mean everything to me. I would also like to thank my beautiful wife, who is always there, helping and supporting me.
