Lionel Messi has become the lastest footballer to help in the fight against coronavirus pandemic by making a donation of 1 million euros.
Government figures on Tuesday revealed that there have been almost 40,000 Covid-19 cases in Spain so far, with almost 2,700 deaths from the virus.
“Leo Messi makes a donation for the fight against Covid-19 at the Clinic. Many thanks for your commitment and your support,” Barcelona’s Hospital Clinic account wrote on Twitter on Tuesday evening.
