Real Madrid showed a touch of class as the club offered the use of the Bernabeu to help the fight against coronavirus.

Real Madrid have combined efforts with the High Council for Sport, launching a project in Madrid to help supply and distribute medical supplies.

The Bernabeu ground will now serve as a space to store donations of medical supplies before they are passed on to the Spanish health authorities.

The coronavirus crisis has hit Spain real bad with Real Madrid personally affected as well after basketball player Trey Thompkins recently tested positive for the virus.

Los Blancos were happy to reveal the partnership, sharing details on their Twitter account on Thursday evening.

Real Madrid will also provide a facility for organizations and businesses, particularly those belonging to the sports sector, to leave money or material donations that they wish to make to the Ministry of Health.

The Los Blancos players and staff remain in self-isolation and this show of class from the club is one that should be highly commended.
