Former president of Real Madrid Lorenzo Sanz has died after contracting coronavirus.

It is understood that 76-year-old Sanz had been suffering from fever for eight days but did not want to admit himself due to the strain on the healthcare system.

"My father has just died," wrote his son Lorenzo Sanz Duran on Twitter.

"He did not deserve this end in this manner. One of the best, most courageous and hard working people I have seen in my life. His family and Real Madrid were his passion."

It is believed that Sanz passed away from kidney failure, having finally been admitted to hospital.

Real Madrid paid tribute to Sanz on Saturday evening.

Sanz was president of the club for five years between 1995 and 2000 and responsible for the victory in the 1998 Champions League victory.
