Unfortunately, we heard another famous person being affected by Coronavirus. He was not only tested positive but also turned out to be fatal. According to a report in Spanish newspaper Malaga Hoy, a 21-year-old Spanish football coach, Francisco Garcia has died from coronavirus who was also been suffering from a form of leukemia.
Francisco Garcia, a youth team coach at Malaga-based club Atletico Portada Alta had an unknown pre-existing health condition that resulted in him being more vulnerable to the virus. Though he was only informed of having cancer after going to the hospital with symptoms of Coronavirus but the football coach couldn’t make it and it is unusual for an individual of his age. The experts said in the Independent, if he hadn’t had leukemia, he would likely have survived the bout of Coronavirus.

Now, what do we do without you, Francis? How are we going to continue conquering ... in the league? We don't know how, but we will surely do it for you.
