Real Madrid captain Ramos open to playing for Spain in Olympics

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos admits he'd be open to playing for Spain in the 2020 Olympics.

Spain have never usually opted for such veteran players to make up their Olympic squads, but this seems to be something Ramos is really keen on.

El Mundo reports that this would be a dream for the centre-back.

"If the chance to go to Tokyo comes up, it would be tremendously exciting for him," is the view of those close to the player.

Spain have already qualified thanks to the Under-21s' performances at this summer's UEFA European Under-21 Championship and each competing nation is permitted to include three over-23s in their Olympic squad.
