Real and Arsenal free to travel

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport - By Tom Mor­gan

New quar­an­tine re­stric­tions with Spain will not ap­ply to Real Madrid play­ers ar­riv­ing to face Manch­ester City in the men’s Cham­pi­ons League or the Arsenal team trav­el­ling to the women’s quar­ter-fi­nals next month.

The Gov­ern­ment says no change is re­quired to the cur­rent reg­u­la­tions around elite ath­letes, as they will con­tinue com­pet­ing within their bub­bles when abroad. Quar­an­tine

rules for the gen­eral pub­lic were im­posed from last Satur­day.

Hugh El­liott, the UK am­bas­sador in Spain, said Real play­ers would be “in a bub­ble to re­duce risks” when they trav­elled to Manch­ester to take on City at the Eti­had Sta­dium a week on Fri­day.

Fol­low­ing a dra­matic in­crease in the virus in Spain, Uefa is open to mov­ing venues for next month’s women’s Cham­pi­ons League.
