Andrea Bocelli: a sports enthusiasts | Photo: Toscana/Backgrid

Classical tenor Andrea Bocelli spent his summer holidays windsurfing in Elba Island, Italy.

The singer has been blind since the age of 12, but he has always been quite active in sports.

Bocelli enjoys rollerblading, skiing, and horseback riding.

This time, the man who sold more than 80 million records decided to give windsurfing a go in the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

Andrea Bocelli, 58, was spotted wearing no wetsuit or harness. He only needed a pair of Speedos to enjoy the gentle winds of Napoleon's place of exile.

The opera tenor was born with congenital glaucoma, but he irreversibly affected his already poor sight while playing football as a teenager.
