MILAN (Reuters) - Italian infrastructure group Atlantia said on Tuesday Spanish toll road operator Abertis had agreed to sell its 89.7 percent stake in Hispasat to Red Electrica for 949 million euros (833 million pounds).

In October, Atlantia and Spain's ACS completed a 16.5 billion-euro acquisition of Abertis.
