Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo has tested positive for Covid-19.Cristiano Ronaldo

The 35-year-old Juventus striker will miss tomorrow’s UEFA Nations League game against Sweden but is “well, has no symptoms and is in isolation”, the Portugese federation said.

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 last 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 this weekend and their Champions League group stage opening game away to Dynamo Kiev next Tuesday.
