He said: "With everything that is happening here, it would be a huge boost for us in social, economic and sporting terms. It will also help us repair the damage that others are causing to our image. The Madrid bid for the 2020 Olympic Games is the most important project this country is facing."
Meanwhile, former chief executive of Ipswich Town and the British Olympic Association, Simon Clegg, has been recruited as a consultant to Madrid's bid for the 2020 Olympics.
Clegg was also involved in London's successful bid for the 2012 Games.
