Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said Sunday that he tested positive for COVID-19, the AP reported.
The leader of Spain's Socialist Party and the country's coalition government wrote on Twitter that he was canceling his speech at a Socialist event Sunday to kick off the new political season after the summer recess.
Sanchez did not say whether he was feeling ill or whether he would cancel other events next week.
Sanchez attended the U.N. General Assembly in New York last week. He returned to Spain on Friday for an official event.
