The mother of Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has died in Spain after contracting coronavirus.
The Premier League club said Dolors Sala Carrio passed away aged 82 in Manresa, Barcelona.
“Everyone associated with the club sends their most heartfelt sympathy at this most distressing time to Pep, his family and all their friends,” Manchester City said in a statement on Twitter.
Last month, 49-year-old Guardiola donated €1m (£918,000) to help his home country of Spain fight COVID-19.
Guardiola has also issued a video as part of Man City’s CItyzens At Home campaign, which urges fans to stay home, and listen to the advice of scientists, doctors, and nurses.
