Alexandros Nikolaidis, the man who glorified Greece, the giant with the smile of a small child, plunged the whole country into mourning. At the Holy Church of the Holy Forerunner of Neapolis in Thessaloniki, friends, relatives, fellow athletes and a crowd of people bid farewell to the Olympic champion in an atmosphere of sorrow.

His sister and his parents are tragic figures.

His wife, holding a red flower, had her hand resting on the coffin.

Even those who try to look cool, buckle when they see the corpse in blue and white.

“You are talking to a man who together with his wife saw his last breaths. he was a very strong child. I can’t say, I’m too short to say so many things about a tall man” says his uncle, Yiannis Soumelidis, with tears in his eyes.

A crowd of people had gathered early for the last cheer.

The two silver Olympic medals were placed on the coffin of the Olympian.

The leader of the Official Opposition, Alexis Tsipras, also attended the exit procession.
