Former Real Madrid president Lorenzo Sanz has died in hospital at the age of 76.
Sanz was hospitalised earlier this week after falling ill, with his family believing that he had contracted coronavirus.
He was tested for COVID-19 while in hospital and was confirmed as positive before his death, due to kidney failure.
Sanz spent five years at the helm at the Santiago Bernabeu, during which the Los Blancos won two Champions League titles.
His eldest son, Lorenzo, confirmed the news on Saturday.
“My father has just died. He didn’t deserve this ending and in this manner.
