Ronaldo is “doing well” and is not showing any symptoms currently, according to the soccer federation, the Associated Press reported. He is reportedly isolating while the team gets ready to play the Nations League match against Sweden on Wednesday.
Ronaldo shared a photo of the team Monday during a dinner. He captioned the photo, “United on and off the field!” in Portuguese. (RELATED: Cristiano Ronaldo Fined More Than $20 Million In Tax Evasion Case, Won’t Go To Prison)
All other members of the team were retested due to Ronaldo’s positive test. They all tested negative, according to the Portuguese Soccer Federation, AP reported.
It is unclear how long Ronaldo is expected to be in isolation, but he very well could miss the match against Barcelona on Oct. 28.
I hope he doesn’t. Ronaldo is probably the best athlete to watch in soccer. The games just won’t be the same without him. I also hope he doesn’t end up getting sick and he makes it out of this okay. Portugal needs him.
