Barcelona defender Gerard Pique took part in the La Liga Santander Fest, which united musicians and footballers to gather funds to fight the coronavirus.

He highlighted that the battle "is not easy" and the importance of being "united", contrasting on-pitch rivalry with having to all fight the virus's spread.

"It's not easy, but we'll do it between us. We're living in a very difficult situation and to do something like La Liga is doing makes us feel very proud," said Pique. "Not just the players but the clubs too and fans for having a role in this Liga Santander Fest. Any person can give their grain of sand and here we are, happy to participate in an initiative like this.

"It's important to differentiate the rivalry on the pitch, derbies, the CLasico, and see when the people need us most united and that is admirable. It makes you proud to be part of this La Liga family.

"It will be difficult, it's hard, we will go through complicated moments. There will be people near you that will suffer, others will suffer directly, but among all of us we will move forward and together we are invincible."

He was speaking on a video call from his home and joked about his kids.

"Parents are like magnets," he said. "Wherever we go they come with us. They're always behind us, there's no way to get rid of them."
