The Portuguese Prime Minister, António Costa, took a long stroll at the Portugal Rugby Youth Festival and stated he places great importance on the spirit of rugby.
Surrounded by a huge crowd of young players from around the world who greeted him cheerfully, Costa revealed a few episodes of his already extensive political life to show the importance he gives to the spirit of rugby. "I noticed that in some moments, at my party, comrades with different political views voted together on certain decisions. I figured it was because they had played rugby together. I realized that there was a great spirit of unity, commitment and loyalty."
