Cristiano Ronaldo tests positive for coronavirus

Footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo has tested positive for Covid-19. This has been ruled out of Portugal’s clash with Sweden.
The Juventus forward is “doing well, without symptoms, and in isolation”, according to a statement from the Portugal national team.

The Juventus striker will now undertake a two-week period in quarantine after contracting Covid-19 while away on international duty.

The Portuguese Football Federation confirmed the news in an official statement on Tuesday, which reads: “Cristiano Ronaldo was released from training with the national team after a positive test for Covid-19, so he will not face Sweden.

“Following the positive test, the remaining players underwent new tests on Tuesday morning, and all produced a negative result and are available to Fernando Santos for training this afternoon.”
