Cristiano Ronaldo Tests Positive For Coronavirus



Juventus attacker and Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).

The five-time Balon d’Or winner has left the Portugal squad and is currently self-isolating.

The Portuguese Football Federation on Tuesday said Ronaldo is in good health and has no symptoms.

All other Portugal players have tested negative for COVID-19 ahead of their game against Sweden.

“Cristiano Ronaldo was released from training with the national team after a positive test for Covid-19, so he will not face Sweden,” the Portugal FA said.

“The Portugal international is doing well, without symptoms, and in isolation.

“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.”
