The operation is similar to one carried out recently for the Champions League match between Real Madrid and Manchester City.

The plain-clothed officers are on alert for possible alarms or serious security incidents.

They are carrying out counter-surveillance work in the area and have fixed points of contact to meet with colleagues in order to prevent any incidents.

Operation Swift has included scouring social media for kind of threats against the singer and her concerts in Spain.

No threats have been detected either from obsessed fans nor from jihadist groups or lone wolves.

The Policia Nacional are conscious that some of Taylor Swift’s bodyguards are Israeli in the light of last October’s terrorist attack by Hamas.
