Barcelona forward Lionel Messi and Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola have both made donations worth €1 million to help overburdened health care systems deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

Ronaldo have donated money for patients suffering from coronavirus at hospitals in Lisbon and Porto.

Former Barcelona player and Manchester City manager Guardiola made his contribution to the fight against the deadly virus with an impressive donation to the Angel Soler Daniel Foundation, which aims to purchase and produce medical equipment that is now lacking in Spain.

Before Guardiola and Messi made their donations, the campaign had raised €33,000 in three days.

Guardiola hails from the region of Catalonia, which is the worst affected part in the whole of Spain.
