Real Madrid – La Liga Spanish capital hit by huge snowfall
Real Madrid have been helping clear the snow around Madrid. The Spanish capital has experienced some of the most adverse winter conditions in generations thanks to Storm Filomena.
Snowfall over the weekend saw all professional matches in Madrid called off, while the Real Madrid squad’s travel plans to Pamplona were disrupted.
Jose Luis Martinez-Almeida, the mayor of Madrid, has revealed that the machines being used in the redevelopment of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu have been loaned out this weekend.
“Real Madrid and the contracted companies immediately made their machines that are working on that redevelopment work [at the Bernabeu] available to the council,” Martinez-Almeida said.
“That then allowed us to start to clear the whole are around the Paseo de la Castellana [on Saturday].”
