SPORT: Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly in quarantine in Madeira after his teammate Daniele Rug
Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly in quarantine in his Madeira home after his Juventus team-mate Daniele Rugani tested positive for coronavirus.
On Wednesday night, Italian defender Daniele Rugani became the second professional footballer to test positive for coronavirus in Germany after Hannover 96 defender Timo Hubers was diagnosed.
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.’
Before the news broke, Ronaldo had flown back to his homeland in Madeira to visit his mother, who recently suffered a stroke after Juventus 2 – 0 win against Inter Milan which was played behind closed doors last Sunday.
