Leeds defender Diego Llorente has become the second player in Spain's European Championships squad to test positive for COVID-19.

The result comes three days after the group went into isolation following captain Sergio Busquets' positive diagnosis.

"The RFEF regrets to announce that the central defender Diego Llorente has tested positive in the last PCR tests carried out this morning at the national team camp in Las Rozas, the Spanish football federation announced.

"The player will tonight leave the national-team set-up in a medical vehicle, following all the established health protocols.

"The national squad will continue with all the work routines established in Covid-19 situations. Personalised training will be maintained to continue the preparation for the European Championship."

Llorente played for Spain, who open their Euros campaign against Sweden on Monday, in last Friday's goalless draw with Portugal.
