Sanz, who was feeling ill, was initially taken to the ICU on Wednesday. No one knew for sure if he had Coronavirus or not, but his family thought it was likely.
He was on painkillers, and reluctant to go into the hospital in order to not strain the resources during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Former Real Madrid player and son of Lorenzo, Fernando Sanz, has given an update on his father tonight:
“We’ve finished speaking to the doctor and the news isn’t good at all,” Fernando Sanz said on social media.
”As well as respiratory failure, he also has a renal failure due to the serious infection.
”We have to wait 24 hours but, due to his age, it’s complicated.
”The worst thing is not being alongside him.”
Our hearts are with the Sanz family during this difficult time.
