SOT, Dirk Nowitzki, Former NBA player (German): "I played tennis once but yeah, since my retirement I have enjoyed life, as many former professionals say you stop watching sports for a while, eat what you want and now I’m in that moment where I enjoy playing other sports and with the kids and the family to travel and somehow I will find my routine and try to eat healthy but this phase is not there."

SOT, Mick Schumacher, Michael Schumacher’s Son and FIA Formula 2 driver (German): "Well I didn’t play football too much [with my father] but we sat in the car together. We drove in the garden together, yes. And of course when you have the chance to help other people and obviously that was always my thought from me and my whole family and that’s the goal me and Dirk want to achieve today."
