With 24 places gained in one month and 91 tournaments completed in one year, Cyril Hanouna is now the 86th French player in padel.

The host of “Touche pas à mon poste” on C8 celebrated it live with his trainer and sometimes partner Adrien Maigret.

And now what's next? Go “search for the top 50”? As always, you have to be able to read between the host's words. If he first plans an “evening to celebrate this ranking”, the host also announced the objective of being part of the French team, which is, you will have understood, more of a joke than something else, even if given his new ranking, the one who will celebrate his 50th birthday next year could perhaps apply for a place among the Seniors +…

Perfectly aware of taking advantage of the best coaches and partners, Cyril wants to “enjoy it” as he explains: “I train almost every day and the tournaments take place on the weekend.” 

His training program: “On Mondays, I train in the morning and in the afternoon, I do my physical preparation with Thibault Geoffray. On Tuesday, I participate in a P250 preparation tournament from 9 a.m. to 17 p.m. Wednesday, tactical and technical training. On Thursday, intensive training match and, on Friday, same thing, but cooler to be operational in the tournament on Saturday”.

A busy schedule for those who, despite everything, recognize their duty “his very good performances to his partners”.
