Giannis Antetokounmpo is not just a basketball fan, he is a big sports fan in general. So inevitably, passing through Madrid to face Spain in preparation for the Euro, he immortalized his meeting with the star of Real Vinicius Jr.. The difference in build is incredible.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is about to experience its first major international competition for several years, and the least we can say is that it has recovered. Not only because a medal with his national team would allow him to perfect his record and enter a little more into the history of this sport, but also because he is criticized by some for his choice of countryand in particular not the Nigerian federation…
With the desire to do well, the Greek Freak also distinguished himself during his team’s first preparation match, with a huge double-double over 30 points, all in just 20 minutes of playing time! Italy, Croatia, Great Britain, Ukraine and Estonia, Greece’s opponents in the EuroBasket group stage, must have followed this with great concern.
Giannis and Vinicius, the viral photo in Madrid
That evening, in addition to destroying Spain on their own ground, in addition to sending a message to the rest of Europe, Giannis had the opportunity to meet one of his idols in the world of sport: Real Madrid striker Vinicius Jr. The two superstars obviously immortalized this moment, and as always, the double MVP wanted to involve his brothers.

Go Madrid 💪🏾⚡️
Vinicius is officially 1m76, Giannis 2m11, and the difference is quite impressive in these photos. But their sizes fit perfectly with the qualities required in football and basketball, since the Greek Freak must be strong and athletic to walk on opposing rackets, when “Vini” must mix speed and agility. They don’t have the same physique, but clearly have the same immense talent.
Well inspired by his photo with Giannis Antetokounmpo, Vinicius has also been excellent for Real Madrid’s first game of the season, with already an assist for Karim Benzema and a new trophy to his name the European Supercup.
