Zlatan Ibrahimovic launches coronavirus fundraiser to help Italian hospitals

AC Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has set up an online fundraiser to help hospitals at the centre of the coronavirus outbreak in Italy, which aims to raise €1m (£920,000).

According to the website accepting donations, Ibrahimovic donated €100,000 (£92,000) to get the fund started.
The 38-year-old, who scored 62 goals in 116 appearances for Sweden, rejoined Milan in January from MLS side Los Angeles Galaxy.
"Italy has always given me so much and, in this dramatic moment, I want to give back even more to this country that I love," Ibrahimovic said in a video message.
He added that he was counting on the generosity of colleagues and professional athletes to contribute.

The site states that all the money raised will be directly donated to Humanitas to help support the intensive care and emergency units of Milano, Bergamo, Castellanza and Torino's hospitals.
