Intense speculation in the Spanish media continues about the whereabouts of embattled ex-King Juan Carlos, after his shock announcement on Monday that he was leaving the country.

The 82-year-old, who is targeted by a corruption probe, announced the move in a letter posted on the royal website.

It gave no details about his destination, but reports suggested he had gone to the Dominican Republic.

Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez says he does not know where the former king is.

In June, Spain’s Supreme Court opened an investigation into Juan Carlos’ alleged involvement in a high-speed rail contract in Saudi Arabia.
