CR7 recovers from Covid-19


CR7 recovers from Covid-19

Juventus and Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo, 35, has recovered from a Covid-19 infection, the Serie A club said on Friday (Oct 30).

CR7 has missed one Portugal match and four Juventus games, including their Champions League clash with F.C. Barcelona, since he tested positive on Oct 13.

"Cristiano Ronaldo has undergone a test today," said Juventus in a statement.

"The result of the test was negative. The player has therefore recovered after 19 days and is no longer subject to the home isolation regime."

Juventus next play at promoted Spezia on Sunday, with all matches now behind closed doors.

Serie A leaders AC Milan also announced that defender Matteo Gabbia, goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and striker Jens Petter Hauge have all tested negative.

Donnarumma and Hauge “are authorised to return to training” before unbeaten Milan travel to Udinese on Sunday, with Gabbia “undergoing medical screening” on Saturday.

A record number of over 31,000 people on Friday tested positive for Covid-19 in a 24-hour period in Italy.

Ronaldo had missed four games including Wednesday’s 2-0 Champions League defeat to Lionel Messi’s Barcelona, and Juventus’s 2-0 win at Dynamo Kiev in their Group G opener.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s return will be a boost for Andrea Pirlo’s faltering side who are fifth in Serie A, four points behind AC Milan.

Ronaldo scored three goals in Juventus’s first two league games – a 3-0 win over Sampdoria and both goals in a 2-2 draw at AS Roma.

But the nine-time reigning champions have been held to three consecutive league draws, Roma (2-2), Crotone (1-1) and Verona (1-1).

They were awarded a 3-0 victory after Napoli refused to travel to Turin on Oct 4 because of coronavirus cases.
