The UNWTO’s Secretary General, Zurab Pololikashvili said, “Fernando is an exceptional athlete and an example of personal integrity, and as a friend of the UNWTO, he will help us promote the positive values and real benefits that tourism can represent.”

 
Accepting the award from Pololikashvili, Hierro said: “As tourists, each of us can change the world if we act responsibly with regard to the places, the people and the cultures we visit. I feel part of this team and I support the World Tourism Organization in its efforts to ensure that tourism benefits everyone.”
