Cristiano Ronaldo is currently in isolation at his home in Madeira, following a positive coronavirus test by his Juventus team-mate Daniele Rugani.

Following diagnosis of Hannover 96 defender Timo Hubers, Italian defender Daniele Rugani became the second professional footballer to test positive for coronavirus in Germany on Wednesday evening.

Rugani wrote on Twitter: ‘You will have read the news and that’s why I want to reassure all those who are worrying about me, I’m fine.

‘I urge everyone to respect the rules, because this virus makes no distinctions! Let’s do it for ourselves, for our loved ones and for those around us.’

Ronaldo had flew back to his homeland in Madeira before the news broke to visit his mother, who had recently suffered a stroke after winning Juventus 2– 0 against Inter Milan which was played behind closed doors last Sunday.

Now everyone who came into contact with Rugani on both sides are now required to be in isolation.

According to Portuguese publications, Quotidiano Sportivo and Abola, Cristiano Ronaldo is currently in quarantine back home in Madeira, Portugal.
