Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly tests positive for coronavirus again and might miss Juventus clash with Barcelona.


 

Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly tested positive for coronavirus for a second time. 

.

The Juventus star was first diagnosed with the illness while on Portugal duty earlier in the month. But nine days after his initial positive test, the football is still infectious.

.

According to Portuguese newspaper Correio de Manha, Ronaldo's latest results came back positive on Thursday, October 22. 

.

The publication claims Ronaldo's test gave a very low viral load despite returning positive, with Juventus still hopeful he could recover in time to feature in the Champions League game. 

.

The club will likely ask UEFA for permission to test Ronaldo 48 hours before the game on October 28. 

.

It will be up to the European football body to decide whether or not to allow such a request to go ahead because a player must test negative at least one week before a match to be considered for selection, according to UEFA protocol.
