French Ligue 1 club Reims were on Sunday in mourning for long-serving club doctor Bernard Gonzalez who committed suicide after being diagnosed with coronavirus, sources confirmed.

Gonzalez, who was 60 years of age at the time of his death, took his life after testing positive to the novel coronavirus and left a note for his wife, who is reportedly also positive. "He is my personal doctor, and today all my thoughts, those of the club where he will remain a strong figure, go to his wife and his parents".

He left a detailed suicide note explaining that he took his own life because he was suffering from coronavirus.

An individual inside the club has told the outlet that he was not even aware that Gonzalez had contracted COVID-19: "I spoke to him last week and he never brought it up".

"Words fail me, I am stunned, prostrate before this news", president Caillot said.
