Pedro Sanchez has offered his deepest condolences to the family

SPANISH prime minister Pedro Sanchez has offered his condolences to the family and friends of little Julen Rossello.

The PSOE leader said the whole of Spain felt the ‘infinite sadness’ of the boy’s parents after the two-year-old was found lifeless down a Malaga well this morning. 

He said: “All of Spain joins the infinite sadness of Julen’s family.

“We have followed closely every step to reach him.

“We will always appreciate the tireless effort of those who searched for him… My support and love to your parents and loved ones.”

It comes after the 13-day rescue mission ended in tragedy when the boy’s lifeless body was discovered at around 1.25am today. 

Spain’s royal family, meanwhile, spoke of their ‘deepest pain’ after hearing the news. 

The official Twitter account said: “Our deepest pain and our deepest condolences to the whole family of Julen.

“And our recognition to each and every one of the people who, without rest, have shown their solidarity without limits.”

Leader of Ciudadanos Albert Rivera also offered his condolences over social media this morning. 

“The worst news arrives from Totalán,” he wrote.

“Rest in peace the little Julen and all my love and encouragement for his family at such a terrible time.

“Thanks to all the professionals who have dedicated themselves to the rescue of the child while all of Spain has been in suspense. #DEPJulen.”

The parents were taken to a funeral home in El Palo this morning while authorities have been carrying out an autopsy on the boy.
