Cristiano Ronaldo tests positive for coronavirus, Portuguese soccer federation says

LISBON, Portugal (AP) - Cristiano Ronaldo has tested positive for the coronavirus, the Portuguese soccer federation said Tuesday.

On Monday, the Juventus forward posted a photo on Twitter showing him and the rest of the Portugal squad having a meal together.

The 35-year-old Ronaldo last month became only the second male soccer player to reach 100 goals for a national team, after former Iran striker Ali Daei.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos said last week the positive results among players were “happening everywhere in the world.”

He could miss Juventus’ Serie A match at Crotone on Saturday and the team’s Champions League opener at Dynamo Kyiv next Tuesday.

There has been some controversy that Ronaldo and six other players were allowed to leave the isolated group and join their national teams.
