By Oliver Fisher -

More donations to Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s ‘Kick the virus away’ fundraiser have arrived from Gianluigi Donnarumma and Lucas Biglia.

Italy now have the highest death toll of any country in the world from the COVID-19 pandemic, as confirmed by the latest batch of figures.

A lot of football clubs and players have lent their support and influence to the emergency response efforts, and Milan made a €250,000 donation to help local hospitals, with players and staff also donating a day’s wages.

Ibrahimovic on Wednesday launched another initiative in addition to the chewing gum one he revealed earlier in the week, pledging to take the fight to coronavirus by setting up a donation page for Humanitas hospitals, donating €100,000 himself.

Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli has donated €5,000 to the cause, while Gigio Donnarumma and Lucas Biglia have followed suit, donating €10,000 and €7,000 respectively.

Later, another donation came from Ibrahimovic’s former team-mate Marco Verratti who pledged €50,000 to the cause to help the ongoing battle against the virus.
