The Real Madrid defender did not let becoming a father for the third time get in the way of his training duties

Spain boss Julen Lopetegui praised the commitment of Sergio Ramos for attending training shortly after the birth of his third child.

Ramos, 31, and wife Pilar Rubio welcomed their new son, Alejandro, at 18:24 local time (16:24 GMT) in Madrid on Sunday.

The couple shared a picture on social media to announce the news.

It seems Ramos was unwilling to skip his international duties, though, as the Spain captain promptly headed to his side’s base at Las Rozas for a training session ahead of the friendly against Argentina.

“It’s a really happy day for all of us,” head coach Lopetegui told Cadena SER
