Spain remains in a “state of alarm”, activated by the prime minister Pedro Sanchez a fortnight ago.

This is a country that is struggling to cope with a mounting coronavirus crisis as its death toll exceeded China’s this week with 769 lives lost on Friday – Spain’s largest single-day surge – bringing the total number of fatalities to 4,858 from 64,000 cases.

With the pandemic at the forefront of people’s minds, the country’s second-richest football club is not immune from feeling the effects. Barcelona have announced plans to reduce player and staff wages in a bid to “minimise the economic impact” caused by the outbreak.
