Dubai: Sports events the world over may have been cancelled due to coronavirus, but His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has posted a rousing video to remind us that we are all one team with everything left to play for.
The one minute 11 second clip posted on Twitter on Saturday with the words “We will win…” says “there will be different games, titles to win and cups to raise” this year, because “for the first time in a long time there’s only one team to put our whole heart behind.”
“Sure”, the narrator adds, “We’ll still have our MVPs and star players” he says as the camera pans across images of the UAE’s health and emergency workers in the frontline of the battle against coronavirus.
“We’ll still cheer them on, pray for victory and do all we can to show our support, because we are all in this together and the whole world is playing for one side. This is our homeground, this is our World Cup and we will win,” adds the narrator.
The video ends with the Emirates seven lines logo and a play on a Shaikh Mohammad quote that states ‘Impossible is possible.”
