El Pais Has Found Him!!

by Loraine Gostling

Last week, local reporter Jo Pugh shared a photo of this officer and the girls ( and some guys) went ballistic.. So now, via El Pais…. all is revealed 😉  

“The tweet spread like wildfire, but it wasn’t so much because of the message as the fact that the officer in the photo looked as if he was straight out of a fashion campaign, or an ad for a gym. The post prompted plenty of curiosity as to who the officer was and whether or not he really was a member of the Guardia Civil, Spain’s oldest law enforcement agency.

He explains that he never imagined it would cause such a fuss. “I’m flattered by all the affection and goodwill from people, and also the compliments, of course, and I’m taking it all with a good sense of humor,” he explains. He adds that he realizes that people’s looks are subjective, and is not too concerned about the issue. “I am clear about how I feel about myself, and if anyone has to like me, it’s my wife,” he says.

And the answer is… yes, he is. Jorge Pérez Díez was born in 1983 in Reinosa, in the northern Spanish region of Cantabria, and he joined the Civil Guard in 2005 because he wanted to help “take care” of others in some way. He used to work on counter-terrorism and narcotics operations in the Basque Country and Catalonia, but now watches over security issues in Aguilar de Campoo, a village with a population of 7,000 people. He moved here out of love, as his wife is a native of Aguilar.
