“I have no doubt whatever he plans to do in the future, he will continue to do so. To have the respect between two people who have had tough battles…
“It’s hard to be friends when you’re having a head-to-head battle and one of you is and one of you isn’t winning. The psychological warfare you go through, it’s tough.

“I’m really grateful for [that],” Hamilton concluded.
