From where he sat high up in the lower box section of the Mall of Asia Arena during the Philippines’ game against France in the FIBA OQT Tuesday, four-time PBA most valuable player Ramon Fernandez, nicknamed El Presidente, had a vantage view of when President Duterte made the ceremonial toss in front of scores of clicking cameras and flashes.
Asked if he would like to get seats closer to where the action is, Fernandez, recently named commissioner in the Philippine Sports Commission, said he was fine just where he was with his wife Karla.
“Okey lang dito, tokayo,” he said. “Maganda ang view. Casual fan lang tayo dito.” (TST)
