World best player and five time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo has tested positive for Covid-19 while on international duty with Portugal national team.
The European Champions who face Sweden on Wednesday confirmed the news in a statement saying; “The 35-year-old is “doing well, without symptoms, and in isolation”.
Cristiano Ronaldo was sent home from international duty to self-isolate and will miss Juventus Serie A clash with Crotone on 17 October, and his side’s opening Champions League group game against Dynamo Kiev on 20 October, since Italy’s new quarantine rules require at least a 10-day isolation period, but he may be back to play Barcalona in 15-days time.
The rest of Portugal squad have tested negative for Covid-19 and are available for selection.
Ronaldo became the first European to score 100 international goals in men’s football and then passed that mark with both goals in the Nations League win over Sweden.
