Sensational and talented Juventus forward Paulo Dybala has become the fourth footballer from the camp to test positive for Coronavirus.
Other popular football players including four Portsmouth players test positive and Lewis Hamilton says he is self-isolating.
The sad news occurred today Saturday when families of the player agreed to run a random test in anticipation of a good news which turned otherwise.
A statement on Juve’s official website confirmed the news:
“Paulo Dybala underwent medical tests that indicated that he tested positive for Coronavirus-COVID19. He has been in voluntary quarantine since Wednesday, March 11. Dybala will continue to be monitored, being well and without symptoms at this time.”
Juventus players Gonzalo Higuain, Sami Khedira, Miralem Pjanic and Douglas Costa have all tested negative and have returned to their native countries to be with their families.
Few hours after the test, the footballer used his Twitter handle to re-echo the information to the general public.
