Paulo Dybala has revealed that both himself and his girlfriend have tested positive for coronavirus.

The Argentine midfielder took to Twitter to confirm the news.

“Hi everyone, I just wanted just to inform you that we have received the results for the Covid-19 test and both Oriana and I have tested positive,” he wrote.

“Luckily we are in perfect conditions. Thanks for your messages.”

Juventus released a statement shortly after Dybala revealed the news.

“Footballer Paulo Dybala has undergone medical tests that have revealed his positivity to Coronavirus-COVID-19,” their statement read.

“The player, on Wednesday 11 March, in voluntary home isolation, will continue to be monitored and to follow the same regime. He is well and is asymptomatic.”

Just last week, rumours circulated that Dybala had tested positive for the virus. The 26-year-old took to Twitter to confirm that this was not the case.

Dybala is the third Juventus player to be diagnosed with COVID-19, along with Blaise Matuidi and Daniele Rugani.

We wish Dybala all the best and a speedy recovery.
