EXTERIOR OF STADIUM STORY: Real Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu stadium will be used as a makeshift storage facility as Spain faces an uphill battle against the coronavirus, the club announced on Thursday (March 26) in conjunction with the country's Superior Sports Council.

On Friday (March 27), the club posted a video on its social media channels featuring people from both the soccer and basketball teams including Zinedine Zidane and Luka Modric.

Everyone in the video says the same message: "Let's fill the Bernabeu with solidarity".

Spain is second only to Italy in numbers of deaths due to the virus, with the toll passing 4000 on Thursday.

Over 56,000 people have so far tested positive for the coronavirus in the country.

The lockdown in Spain is expected to be extended once the initial 15-day measure is completed this weekend.

"Thanks to the close collaboration between the two institutions, the Santiago Bernabeu stadium will be turned into an adapted space used to store donations of medical supplies in the fight against the pandemic," Real said in a statement.

"All of this material will be given to the Spanish health authorities, who are under the authority of the government, in order that the resources be used optimally and efficiently, which is necessary given the current emergency." The club will also allow entities and businesses, especially those linked to sport, the possibility to make donations, either economic or in the form of materials required by the Ministry of Health.
