Spanish football coach aged 21 dies after Coronavirus diagnosis

A 21-year-old Spanish soccer coach has died after contracting Coronavirus.

According to reports, the Coach was also battling leukaemia.

Francisco Garcia, a youth team coach at Malaga club Atletico Portada Alta, only received his cancer diagnosis after going to the hospital with symptoms of the virus.

The coach had been advised to seek medical help after he began experiencing trouble breathing, Spanish newspaper Malaga Hoy reported.

Garcia was told that not only did he have both coronavirus and pneumonia, but he was also suffering from leukaemia.

Pep Bueno, the club president of Atletico Portada Alta, where Garcia had previously trained, said he received a call from the hospital Sunday that Garcia was in stable condition.

But within an hour, he was informed that Garcia’s health had greatly deteriorated, according to the report.

“I do not believe it. It seems impossible to me,” Bueno said, according to the Independent.

Garcia is the youngest person to die from the virus in Malaga, where the four other deaths were all patients over the age of 70, the outlet reported.

Health officials have said the majority of COVID-19 casualties across the world have been among people who are older or have underlying health conditions.
