He will be missing the next game against Sweden.
Portuguese and Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has tested positive for coronavirus. The news was shared by Portugal’s Football Federation through a statement on its website on Tuesday.
The five-time Ballon D'Or winner is on international duty leading his country in the Nations League. He will be missing the next game against Sweden.
According to the statement, the 35-year-old is "well, has no symptoms and is in isolation".
The federation added that the rest of the Portugal squad had undergone tests as a result of Ronaldo’s positive, but that they had all tested negative and would be available for the Sweden match.
Five-times world player of the year Ronaldo appeared in his side’s 0-0 draw away to France in the Nations League on Sunday and Wednesday’s 0-0 draw in a friendly at home to Spain.
He will now be doubtful for Juve’s Serie A trip to Crotone on Saturday and their Champions League group stage opening game away to Dynamo Kiev next Tuesday.
