MADRID (Reuters) - Spain's former king Juan Carlos has already left Spain, El Mundo newspaper said on Monday after the Royal House announced he planned to do so after corruption allegations about him surfaced in recent weeks.

In June, the Spanish Supreme Court opened an investigation into Juan Carlos' involvement in a high-speed rail contract in Saudi Arabia, after Switzerland's La Tribune de Geneve newspaper reported he had received $100 million from the late Saudi King.
