Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, 73, has tested positive for Covid-19, the club announced on Tuesday.

The reigning Spanish champions said in a statement Perez “is not presenting any symptoms”.

Perez’s positive test comes after Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane also tested positive last month.

Zidane was asymptomatic and returned to Madrid’s training ground on Tuesday morning following his period of isolation.

Perez is in his second term as Real Madrid president, which began in 2009. He was also in charge of the club between 2000 and 2006.

The club statement read: “Real Madrid confirms that our president Florentino Perez has given a positive result in the COVID-19 tests to which he is subjected periodically, although he is not presenting any symptoms.”
