Tom Brady: Gisele in opening ceremony ‘was the best part of the Olympics’

Monday August 15th, 2016

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says that his favorite part of the Rio Olympics was watching his wife, Gisele Bundchen, participate in the opening ceremony.

“It was amazing to see her out there and do that. It was the best part of the Olympics for me,” Brady said via ESPN. “She’s an amazing woman, an amazing mother, and she represents the best of Brazil as far as I’m concerned. It was an amazing spectacle and she’s an amazing person.”

Bundchen, who is from Brazil, recently retired from modeling, but took to the catwalk for the final time at Maracana Stadium in Rio De Janeiro.

Brady, 39, is currently preparing for his 17th season with the Patriots.
