"Motorsport is a great passion of mine so to be given the opportunity to take part in the Virtual Spanish GP is very exciting for me," said Aguero.

"With PUMA I have travelled to watch F1 races and test myself at track days, which have been exhilarating experiences. But this takes it to the next level and gives me the opportunity to race and compete against real F1 drivers – I can’t wait!”

Aguero is not the only footballer to be taking part in this next race as Barcelona midfielder Arthur Melo will also be competing with Haas, while Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibault Courtois again races with Alfa Romeo.

The race take place on Sunday, May 10 from 18:00 BST, with a pro-exhibition race starting an hour earlier at 17:00.
