It is a tradition of every year, but after his singing for Barça, the expectation this year was maximum.
Confusion first, cheer later. It had been announced that, as every year, Alexis Sanchez hand out gifts to the smallest in his hometown, Tocopilla before noon. But the people had eaten, and nothing. Even a freelance photographer who had traveled specifically to that city of 31,000 inhabitants left without seeing Alexis.
But could not miss tocopillano people. And do not miss. Entry and later a truck came and sat on it, Papa Noel Alexis Sanchez, accompanied by his lifelong friends of Tocopilla. And behind a huge convoy of over 500 vehicles accompanying them. The truck, of course, filled with toys and balls signed by the Barcelona player.
It was the happiest Christmas Eve for children, and even some older, Tocopilla, which not only closely could see their idol but received a very welcome gift these days.
