The captain for the Portugal National team and Juventus FC forward Cristiano Ronaldo and two other team players have reportedly tested positive for coronavirus, following Rugani’s case.

As at now, Cristiano Ronaldo is being quarantined in his Madeira home after showing signs of the disease.

Everyone who came into contact with Rugani on both sides has now required to be in isolation.

It is hoped that the spread is limited as Rugani remained an unused substitute for Maurizio Sarri on the Juventus bench. 

The Portuguese press plastered the story over their front pages with Quotidiano Sportivo and Abola both running headlines about Ronaldo being in quarantine.
