Recently crowned US Open men's singles champion Rafael Nadal saw his Twitter account hacked earlier on Wednesday, after which he posted out an apology tweet in Spanish.

He said, “I just realized that third parties have entered into my profile making unacceptable use. I have already recovered it. I regret what happened.” Here is the original tweet:

However, there was not much damage caused to the Spaniard as the hackers made just one post. It was a retweet of a video from proceedings in the Spanish Parliament, which was subsequently deleted. Here is a screenshot of the same:

The translation of the same is, "The blow to Rufian has been heard even in Meranges." The video shared from Nadal's account is as follows:

Nadal is coming off the back of a wonderful season that has seen him lift the French Open and US Open crowns, taking his overall tally to 16 Grand Slam Titles.

Fans replied to the Spaniard's tweet, sending in their love and support to Nadal, stating that they understood his situation and don't blame him.
