A former Real Madrid president is in hospital and is suspected to have contracted the highly-contagious coronavirus, which could be detrimental to his wellbeing considering his age.
Lorenzo Sanz is currently being treated by medical professionals after falling ill, as revealed by his son Fernando Sanz, who played for Los Blancos during his father's time as the club's chief.
The former player has admitted he and his family are concerned about his dad's health, saying they do not yet know if he has contracted the Covid-19 virus.
"We are quite worried, and little can be done," Fernando Sanz said, according to Marca.
"He had been feverish for eight days, they called the phone and told him to take paracetamol.
"He did not want to go to the hospital until he was short of air and he was getting worse.
"They put him inside and told him that he was bad, with little oxygen in his blood. He said he had a low fever and did not want to collapse the system. We do not know if it is coronavirus or not.
"My mother is there because we have not been able to go. They have said that they would call and that, as long as they do not call, it is good news."
Lorenzo Sanz was president of the Spanish giants from 1995 to 2005, during the club's famous Galactico era.
