Casillas honoured to receive Prince of Asturias Award

Real Madrid goalkeeper, Iker Casillas has voiced his joy in receiving the Price of Asturias Award, which recognizes individuals and organisations from around the world who make notable achievements, and both football stars are being rewarded this year for their incredible contributions to the sporting world.
´┐╝The award also has another special significance, as the Spanish captain will be sharing it with his good friend and Spanish national teammate, Barcelona midfielder, Xavi Hernandez.
ÔÇ£There is a bright career that I can boast about tomorrow and I hope to continue to expand it.
ÔÇ£I am proud that my name is linked forever with others such as Fernando Alonso, Indurain and Nadal.
ÔÇ£Hopefully I can get to the 500 victories with Real Madrid and continue to give joy to a hobby that deserves everything.
ÔÇ£To me, the fans of Real Madrid are the most sacred, and everything that comes from [them] is very welcome.
Casillas and Hernandez will accept the joint award at Campoamor Theatre in Oviedo on Friday.
