“I think also with the older generation, I guess when you get to our age, [you have] a little bit more empathy.
“And, you know, he’s got a family, he’s thinking about the future of his kids and the planet, you know, what we do now, to prepare them for the future.
“And he’s obviously trying to be a beacon of light for those kids and for the kids that support him. We speak often, and we talk on these topics.”
The Briton was then asked if there are any issues that they could ‘team up’ on.
“We don’t have any plans of doing anything in the future but as I said, if there is a specific issue, on the weekend we discuss it, and we support each other with it,” concluded Hamilton.
