The RFEC explains that all the members that make up the Spanish expedition for the World Cup event tested negative in the PCR test before flying to Austria. "Later, upon arrival of the trip, after carrying out new tests, the technical director was positive for Covid-19, activating the control mechanism and going into isolation together with six other people from the expedition with whom the positive had contact."

The RFEC indicates that Sánchez underwent a second PCR whose result was known yesterday and in which he returned an adverse result, while the other six isolated members, among which is the cyclist Roger Ferrer, have tested negative in these second tests, although they continue to comply with the isolation imposed by the Austrian authorities.
