Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, has tested positive for COVID-19.
The Spanish club confirmed this in an official statement on Tuesday.
It read: “Real Madrid CF would like to inform that our president Florentino Perez has tested positive in the Covid-19 tests that he periodically undergoes, although he is not showing any symptoms.”
Perez will now spend the next 10 days in isolation.
The 73-year-old will have to post a negative test after that period, for him to return to work at Santiago Bernabeu.
He was re-elected for a second term as Madrid president in 2009, having presided over the club’s ninth European Cup triumph and run to two La Liga titles during his first spell in the boardroom.
