Real Madrid have offered the use of the Bernabeu to help the fight against coronavirus.

The club, in collaboration with the High Council for Sport, have launched a project in the city to help supply and distribute medical supplies.

Their vast Bernabeu ground will offer a space equipped to store donations of medical supplies which will be passed on to the Spanish health authorities.

Real Madrid will also provide a facility for organisations and businesses, particularly those belonging to the sports sector, to leave money or material donations that they wish to make to the Ministry of Health.

Spain is suffering terribly in the grip of the pandemic. The death toll in the country has now surpassed China and is the second highest in the world behind Italy.

Chelsea winger Pedro revealed his foundation is trying to help in his homeland.

“We are working together with a lot of hospitals, not just in the Canary Islands, but also in Madrid, Barcelona and other parts of Spain,” he told the Blues’ website.

“We have begun some good projects which include distributing protective screens for all the nurses, doctors, security guards and police officers.

“We’re trying to distribute the biggest possible number of protective masks for all these professionals, not only in the Canaries, but in the areas where there have been the most cases, in Madrid and Catalonia.”
