International soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and has entered insolation after learning of the news.

Ronaldo, who had been with the Portugal men’s national team while participating in the UEFA Nations League competition, got news of his positive test on Tuesday while with the team in Lisbon.

The Juventus star last played in a match on Sunday, when Portugal drew 0-0 with France in a Nations League group stage matchup in Paris. Ronaldo played all 90 minutes of the match and appeared to be healthy.

There is speculation that Ronaldo could have been infected by a Juventus coaching staff member after it was revealed last week that two of them had tested positive for the virus.

Fortunately for the star player, the Portuguese soccer federation confirmed in a statement that he is currently symptom-free and feeling fine despite testing positive.

A round of testing for the rest of the players on the national team also conducted on Tuesday, found no other positive results.

The 35-year-old scorer will now remain in isolation in Portugal until he receives two negative test results, which is when he will be cleared to return to his team for training.

Juventus is set to take on Crotone this Saturday in a match that their star player will almost certainly be forced to miss.
