Cristiano Ronaldo tests positive for COVID-19

The Portuguese soccer federation says Cristiano Ronaldo has tested positive for the coronavirus

The federation said Ronaldo was doing well and had no symptoms. It did not say when he tested positive.

Ronaldo is in isolation and has been dropped from the country’s Nations League match against Sweden on Wednesday.

Along with the tweet, Ronaldo wrote, in Portuguese, “United on and off the field!”

The federation said Ronaldo’s result prompted another round of tests for the rest of the Portugal squad. It said everyone else in the team tested negative.

The squad was scheduled to practice normally on Tuesday ahead of the match against Sweden in Lisbon.
