Real Madrid have activated the coronavirus protocol for both their football and basketball teams after Trey Thompkins tested positive for the disease.
When the positive news came out, all members of the club left Valdebebas urgently.
The Real Madrid football squad, who were set to start training at 11:00 CET, did not do so and left the club’s training ground.
Although the person who tested positive for coronavirus plays for the basketball team, there are areas at Valdebebas that both Real Madrid‘s basketball and football sections of the club use, so the training ground has been closed and everyone left instantly.
“Real Madrid C.F. announces that a member of our basketball first team has tested positive for coronavirus,” Real Madrid‘s statement read.
“The recommendation of remaining in quarantine has been followed with immediate effect, with this measure applied to both the basketball and football first teams, given that the two squads share the facilities at Real Madrid City.
“In addition, a decision has been made to close our training ground and it is recommended that all Real Madrid staff who work at Real Madrid City remain in quarantine.
“The EuroLeague basketball match and the LaLiga football fixture scheduled for today and tomorrow will not be played.”
