Juventus Football Club star player, Christiano Ronaldo, has been quarantined in Portugal after his team mate, Daniele Rugani tested positive to the deadly coronavirus disease.
The Portuguese footballer was at his hometown in Madeira on Wednesday to see his mother who had stroke recently when he received the news that Rugani had tested positive to the contagion.
Ronaldo and Rugani had shared a dressing room when Juventus beat Inter Milan 2-0 behind closed doors.
Following the news of the test, Ronaldo went into self-isolation as was an ideal medical practice to stem the spread of the virus.
Rugani however said he was okay on his official twitter handle and urge everyone not to worry about him.
“You will have read the news and that is why I want to reassure all those who worry about me, it’s okay. I urge everyone to follow the rules because this virus makes no distinction. Let’s do it for ourselves, for our loved ones and for those around us.” Rugani’s tweet reads.
