Count Conor McGregor among those who has Italy in his prayers during the coronavirus pandemic.

The former two-division UFC champion, who is a native of Dublin, Ireland, released a statement on Instagram directed toward the nation, which has been among the countries hit hardest by the coronavirus outbreak.

“I cannot get Italy out of my thoughts,” McGregor wrote. “Praying daily for this great nation that brought the world such amazing things. From its people and their culture. To its architecture and design. Its style! It’s cuisine! It’s art! The list goes on and on and on! Italy and its people are class personified, through and through. ‪Lord Jesus please save Italy and its people today and everyday here forward.”
