I don't. Give me the rain any day over this, it's absolutely horrible out there at the moment. Walked out the front door of my apartment building today at lunch time to find two guards standing beside an older fella who was sitting on the ground. He'd passed out with the heat and they were waiting for an ambulance. I don't know how they stick it in Spain and places where it's warmer again and it's constant all summer long.    

They've acclimatized. 

 
They haven't though
I work with 2 lads from Seville and Greece and both love it here because of the cooler climate. They would have lived in extreme temperatures.

One of the lads moved back to Seville and it was 46 last week and he was struggling. He gets up at 5am to get a decent cycle in to avoid the hot temperatures too.



There's always exceptions to the rule and 46 is uncomfortable for any man.

By and large, they are in much better shape for their climates. I could tell you the amount of times ive been laughed at by those from med countries when i say what we experience now is hot.

Sure go to Madrid and youll see lads in full tins of fruit as you bake in your shorts and not a bother on them. Doesnt mean they prefer it. 

I remember the shuttle bus from Train station to Ground in Lille during the Euros, majority of Irish supporters were dripping with sweat , the Italians nowt wrong with them

Don't think I've ever been in a hot a place as the trams out to the stadium in Bordeaux for the Belgium game. People having to take jerseys off and dry them on the ground.

It's hot, and it's been a few years since I've experienced it as hot here, but we're lucky that we don't get a lot of humidity. Without that, we really don't know what it's like in the likes of Spain or the Middle East.

When it's roasting, the breeze we get is tremendous Clap

I think we get more humidity than Spain and the ME. 29 here feels a lot hotter than 29 in Spain. But ye the breeze makes a big difference.

I agree on this. Lowest I've experienced in Dubai has been 16 degrees around January time and it's genuinely cold in the mornings. 16 degrees would be shorts and t-shirt weather here.

Was in the desert in New Mexico a couple of years back & it was mid forties, it’s a different kind of heat though, no humidity makes a huge difference

The stadium in Lille with the roof closed was ridiculously hot. Yet still didn't hold a candle to the Mexico game in 94 which was actually criminal scheduling. And no water bottles allowed on pitch, absolute madness.
