“I have been in contact with him … he was worried about his parents before because they are aging and trying to isolate themselves,” Arteta told Sky Sports.
“It is really sad news. I know the family very well. I send my condolences to them and I hope they can live this together. “
Spain has registered more than 153,000 cases, the largest of all countries and 10,000 more than Italy, and Guardiola had already donated £ 900,000 to his country of origin in the fight against virus.

Guardiola’s mother, 82, is one of 15,447 deaths in the country, a fraction of the 1.5 million cases recorded worldwide.
City players such as Gabriel Jesus, Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva sent public messages to Guardiola, with the rest of the club staff contacting the 49-year-old player privately.
Jesus tweeted, “I’m very sorry for your loss, Pep. I wish strength to your family to continue. May God bless you at this very difficult time and may your mother, Dolors Sala Carrió, rest in peace.
