The popular sports documentary series Informe Robinson returns to Spanish television sets tomorrow night with an in-depth interview with Sergio Ramos, which was filmed over a number of weeks. In order to get access to the player, Michael Robinson and his production staff presented a formal request to the Real Madrid communication department. After hearing nothing back from the club, producers contacted Ramos directly and the Los Blancos captain agreed to appear on the programme without Real Madrid's permission. 

In the report, entitled 'Capitán Ramos', Michael Robinson and his subject look over some of the pivotal moments in the Seville native's illustrious career; talking about his native Camas, his enviable trophy collection, celebrating in Cibeles and that night at the Estádio da Luz in Lisbon, when his headed goal set the wheels in motion for Real Madrid to scoop the long-awaited Décima

Without Ramos' personal desire to appear on the prestigious television programme, the report could not have been made, as the club, known for its iron-fisted stance on players appearing in the media, did not grant permission for the filming. The 30-year-old flew to Seville and Lisbon during the production and also invited a camera crew to his Madrid home. Having seen the final edit, Ramos and his brother/agent René are said to be thrilled with the outcome.

Pool party

Ramos took the two-day break given to the squad by Zinedine Zidane to rest up in his palatial home. And, not one to be lonely, the Andalucian defender invited some of his team-mates to hang out with him, as he revealed on his Twitter account by posting a photo of himself, Keylor Navas, Lucas Vázquez and Luka Modric chilling out by his swimming pool under the caption, "A few days of rest and relaxation in my homeland. A pleasure to have your company, friends".
