It broke my heart and the heart of every Brazilian watching the pain on your face on the Castelão field yesterday.
But we also saw the immense strength of a great warrior, who will never let himself be held back even when wounded.
A great warrior who briefly interrupts his march, having already left his insurmountable mark on the victorious battle our Seleção is fighting.
I know that, like every Brazilian, you will never give up, and sooner than one can imagine, you will be back to fill our souls with joy and our history with triumph.
May God give you strength and always protect you.
President of the Federative Republic of Brazil
