Cristiano Ronaldo Tests Positive for Coronavirus

As the Portuguese Football Federation has confirmed, the Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has tested positive for coronavirus.
The 35-year-old is said to be “doing well, without signs and in isolation,” with no additional positive tests recorded in the squad prior to Wednesday’s Portuguese Nations League match against Sweden.

In a statement, the PFF confirmed: ‘Following the positive case, the remaining players have undergone new tests this Tuesday morning, all with a negative result, and are available to Fernando Santos in Cidade do Futebol for training this afternoon.’
So far, Ronaldo has appeared during the international break in both of Portugal’s matches. Former Manchester United and Real Madrid started in Lisbon against Spain, started late in the second half of the goalless draw, and then played all of the Nations League A3 match against France in Saint-Denis on Sunday.
He scored in both of his Serie A appearances this season, including two goals on 27 September in the 2-2 draw against Roma.
Napoli refused to show up for a Juventus match earlier this month after their local health authority ordered players to remain at home after positive Covid-19 results returned by Piotr Zielinski and Elif Elmas of the club. Despite facing the possibility of a 3-0 walkover victory being awarded to Juve by Serie A, Napoli’s legal representatives said they would oppose this result.
Two non-playing or coaching staff members at Juventus went into isolation after testing positive in the runup to the scheduled fixture.
Outside the match, technical and medical personnel were those affected, all of whom were able to function in isolation until the findings were identified.
