Pau Gasol says he is willing to play for Spain at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, writing in a newspaper column that his duty to the national team overwhelmed his concerns about the Zika virus.
“My commitment to the national team is greater than my fears over what might happen,” Gasol wrote Saturday in the Spanish newspaper Marca. “My feelings of passion and responsibility toward my national team, my sport and my teammates are huge. They have always been and always will be. My first instinct in that sense has always been to want to be with the national team each summer.”
