Toronto Raptors Name Their Practice Facility In Honor Of Drake

Bosses at Canadian basketball team the Toronto Raptors have honored their most famous fan, Drake, by naming their new practice facility after the rapper's OVO brand.

The team's workout venue has undergone a major makeover and has been renamed the OVO Athletic Center.

"Introducing the OVO Athletic Center, the official training facility for the Toronto Raptors,” Drake captioned a photo of the new complex on Instagram. "just wanted to add that I am so proud of my brothers and so proud to be from this city I swear this one feels like a high school dream and it’s a blessing to be able to raise up the levels and make the human mind stretch when it comes to thinking about what is possible in your lifetime!! Much love to everyone involved."

Drake is the team's official ambassador and last year (18) he was recently honored with his own 'Drake Night' to mark his contributions to the city of Toronto.

The rapper is currently on tour in Europe and on Wednesday night he invited his son's ex-porn star mother, Sophie Brussaux, to his concert in Paris as a VIP guest.

French-born Sophie, who shared footage of herself dancing with a friend at the show, gave birth to Drake's son Adonis in 2017.

The little lad shares the rapper's birthday - October 24.

Drake confirmed he was a dad last summer, claiming he'd only met Sophie twice before they conceived the child.
