Video of the Day: Exiled Cuban featherweight boxing champion Robeisy Ramirez reunited with his daughter

This emotional video captures the moment WBO champion Robeisy Ramirez was reunited with his young daughter, who he had not seen in 5 years since defecting from communist Cuba in 2018.

In a tweet by Ramirez featuring the video, he had this to say about the reunion (my translation):

The optimist in me always knew it. There are stories with a happy ending. When I left Cuba, I left everything behind. Even a piece of my heart, which circumstances tore away from me. What I didn’t lose was hope, or the promise as a father to see each other again. After 5 years of anxiously waiting, today Renata, the promise is fulfilled, and my heart is full again. I love you, daughter!
