Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has donated 1m euros (£920,000) to fight the coronavirus outbreak in Spain. Guardiola, who is at his home in Barcelona, has been working with his lawyers over the past few days to work out the best way of using the money.
It will go to a campaign being promoted by the Medical College of Barcelona and the Angel Soler Daniel Foundation. Spain is one of the worst affected countries in Europe. Official figures on Tuesday showed that 2,696 people had died in the country and close to 40,000 are infected.
The money will be used to help purchase medical equipment and protective material for the hospital staff involved in treating those admitted to hospital.
