Real Madrid have announced that Sergio Ramos has tested positive for COVID-19.
The 35-year-old has barely been in contact with his teammates as he continues to recover from a muscle injury he picked up on international duty with Spain.
It was expected that Ramos would miss around a month, with it having been two weeks so far, and it remains to be seen whether his positive test will impact his return time or not. The Real Madrid captain will now self-isolate and follow the necessary health measures.
Ramos was last seen in the stands at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano last Saturday for the Clasico, cheering and protesting from his seat. At the end of the game he was also in the tunnel, where he followed the dispute between some Barcelona players and referee Jesus Gil Manzano.
Ramos is currently not the only player in the squad to have contracted COVID-19, as his partner at the back, Raphael Varane, is also out of the squad due to a positive test.
Mariano Diaz, Eden Hazard, Eder Militao, Casemiro, Luka Jovic and Nacho Fernandez, as well as Zinedine Zidane, are also on the list of players who have already tested positive for the disease.
