But her health deteriorated on Tuesday and shortly after her death was announced by local media.

The footballer had already been allowed to leave his post with Atletico Madrid in order to return home to Uruguay.

And it was reported by local media that Torreira and his family had been staying in a hotel in Salto to be close to Viviana.

Back in January, Torreira showed the love he has for his mum by getting a portrait of her on his leg.

On his left leg, almost on the shin itself, is the portrait of her.

Torreira regularly posted pictures of the pair together on social media.

Viviana was the daughter of footballer Edison ‘Tito’ Di Pascua, a player from Fray Bentos who won seven local titles in Río Negro.

According to the National Emergency System, Uruguay has registered 99,584 cases of coronavirus.

And the death toll from Covid in the South American country currently stands at 928.

Torreira is on loan at Atletico from Arsenal, with his long-term club future unknown.

Fiorentina, 14th in Serie A, are said to be ‘well ahead’ in talks with Torreira over a permanent switch.

And Arsenal have apparently already given the ‘green light’ for a deal to be completed as soon as possible.

The move would see Torreira return to Italian football after leaving Sampdoria for the Gunners in 2018.
