NJPW legend, Kazuchika Okada, has donated 5 Million Yen to Nippon Foundation’s special Coronavirus relief fund, supporting those that are at the forefront of the battle against the deadly killer in Japan.
In a statement released on the NJPW website, Okada said;
I’m always grateful for NJPW fans’ support, and it’s my hope that I can get back to hearing the cheers of sold out crowds as soon as possible.
It’s usually me receiving the support and power of the people, but now I feel it’s my turn to lend support to medical staff fighting this disease.
I hope fans continue to stay home and stay healthy, so that we can return to the ring as soon as possible.”
This is a sentiment that I can get behind, especially in the UK where idiots seem to think its fine for them to carry on as if nothing has happened, even though we have the highest death rate in the whole of Europe, and though I’m with Okada in his hope of a return to action sooner rather than later, I fear this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this global pandemic.
Thanks as always for your support of Sports Obsessive!
