Vento noted that the hierarchy of Giraldo, as many of his admirers called him, ‘grew with modesty and simplicity that never left him.’

‘Another low blow by #COVID-19 within #InderCuba, which accompanies the family and friends in their pain,’ Vento tweeted.

The president of the Cuban Olympic Committee, Roberto Leon Richards, expressed his condolences to the family and friends of the ‘Pinar del Rio vacuum cleaner,’ as the fans called Giraldo.

‘From the Cuban Olympic Committee we accompany the family and friends of that great of baseball that was Giraldo Gonzalez, whose death shakes us on Saturday,’ the former gymnast tweeted.
