• Previous Spain's tactic in search of the first medal: Valverde, four lone wolves and a Japanese mini Mortirolo

Amid the happiness of the opening parade of the Tokyo Olympics, an alarm has rocked the Spanish delegation.

A masseur from the Spanish cycling team has tested positive for coronavirus and the national team is in suspense waiting to know whether or not they will be able to go out in the test that begins at dawn this Saturday.

The news, confirmed by EL MUNDO, has been advanced by

José Manuel Franco

, president of the Higher Sports Council, on

National Radio.

"A last minute problem has arisen with cycling, a positive from a masseur, but I hope it does not affect the rest of the team."

The members of the team (

Alejandro Valverde, the Izagirre brothers, Omar Fraile and Jesús Herrada

) and the coaching staff, who found out the positive of the assistant in the afternoon, will undergo another PCR test in the next few minutes.

At the moment, they have no more news about it.

The start of the test, the first to distribute medals in these Games, ending at the Fuji Autodrome, is scheduled at 11:00 am Tokyo (4:00 am Spanish time).
