Ronaldo Contracts Covid-19

Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly contracted Covid-19 and has been isolated from the Portugal squad.

There are fears that the player might have infected some players.

The Portugal international has had contacts with opposing players of Spain and France in their last two matches.

Both games finished goalless, but the 35-year-old is now out of the match against Sweden tomorrow night.

It comes after Ronaldo tested positive for Covid-19, despite showing no symptoms.

He will now self-isolate before returning to link up with the Juve squad.

A statement read: “Cristiano Ronaldo was released from the work of the National Team after a positive test for COVID-19, so he will not face Sweden.

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

“Following the positive case, the remaining players underwent new tests this Tuesday morning, all with a negative result, and are available to Fernando Santos for training this afternoon, in Cidade do Futebol.”

Ronaldo last night uploaded a selfie with his Portugal team-mates, sharing a huge smile to the camera.

He was also pictured hugging France stars Kylian Mbappe and Raphael Varane after their draw.

France play Croatia tomorrow night also.

Since the start of the new season, Neymar, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba all tested positive for the virus.
