The official Spanish announcer at the current World Handball Championships in Madrid, has revealed to Croatian daily newspaper Vecernji list his love for Croatia, even saying he dumped his ex-girlfriend because she hated Croatia.
DJ Luis Torres (37) is the arena announcer in Madrid and he has been motivating players by playing Croatian tunes before each match at the World Championships. Torres first fell in love with Croatia when he visited in 2005.
“I can speak Slovenian better than Croatian because I had a girlfriend from Slovenia,” said Torres, before adding, “We broke up last year because she hated Croatia!, she always acted like Slovenes were above everybody else.”
Torres has worked as DJ at the Olympic games, European Basketball Champs, Champions League football matches and at a volleyball tournament in Zagreb.
“I have a programme of around 300 Croatian songs which I like to listen to,” said Torres.
