PSG forward Neymar has reportedly tested positive for coronavirus as the French club confirmed three cases amongst their players.
The club’s official Twitter account stated:
“Three @PSG_English players are confirmed positive after a Sars CoV2 test and have undergone the appropriate health protocols. All players and staff will continue to be tested over the next few days.”
French sports newspaper L’Equipe has claimed that the Brazilian international returned the result after a holiday in Ibiza.
Although the Ligue 1 season has kicked off, PSG have yet to begin their campaign as they have been given a break following their run to last month’s Champions League final, where they were beaten 1-0 by Bayern Munich.
The Parisian club start their title defence at Racing Lens on Sept. 10.
He would be the third player to test positive after, according to reports, Leandro Paredes and Angel di Maria, who also contracted the disease on the Spanish island.
