Real Madrid fan and Formula One superstar Fernando Alonso has been named as an official honorary member of the Whites at a lavish ceremony held at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The boyhood Los Blancos fan, who endured a disappointing Italian Grand Prix on Sunday, is the latest inductee into Real’s member roll of honour.

“Thank you very much Mr. President, this is a tremendously special day for me, I do not miss anything that happens at this club and when people ask me why I am a supporter, I always say I don’t know why, because I was just born to be a Real Madrid supporter,” the McLaren-Honda driver, now 36, said.

The Spaniard is twice a world championship, having won back-to-back crowns in 2005 and 2006.
