Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has donated 1m euros (£920,000) to help tackle the coronavirus pandemic in Spain.

Guardiola, who has moved back to his home in Spain , had been working with his lawyers over the past few days to work out the best way of allocating the money.

The funds will go into 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 reports that came in on Tuesday stated 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.

The Catalan region where Pep is from and have been a very vocal supporter is one of the areas in Spain which has the most concentrated number of cases.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have both reportedly donated 1m euros to coronavirus campaigns this week.
