Three-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo has tested positive for the coronavirus, the Portuguese Football Federation announced on Tuesday.

According to the Federation’s statement, the 35-year-old player is “well, without symptoms, and in isolation.” The test results came in positive following a friendly game against Spain last week followed by a match against France for the Nations League on Sunday. Due to his condition, the Juventus left-winger will now have to miss his next international fixture against Sweden on Wednesday, as well as his club matches against Serie A’s Crotone and the Champions League’s Dynamo Kyiv.
