On his official Twitter account, Diaz-Canel wrote, ‘What early morning hours you gave us, Julio Cesar! You touched your Homeland with the ‘I love you, Cuba’ that you said when you won your second Olympic gold. Congratulations, boy, your fight was resounding. We already have 6 gold medals and our small island country ranks 13th in the table of medals. Some feat!

The 31-year-old Cuban boxer, also known as The Shadow or The Doctor for his unique fighting style, defeated the representative of the Russian Olympic Committee, world champion Muslim Gadzhimagomedov, 5-0 in the Japanese capital in the dispute for the crown in the 91-kg division.

Boxing leads Cuba’s performance in these games, something that happens in almost all multi-sport events, that is why it is called the ‘flagship’ of Cuban sport.
