The Portuguese star’s positive test crashes Juventus’ shares. Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister Katia Aveiro has posted an explosive rant on Instagram following news of the positive coronavirus test for the Juventus superstar.
It was confirmed on Tuesday that five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo had tested positive for Covid-19, while he was away on international duty with Portugal, forcing him to withdraw from the squad and self-isolate.
A statement from the Portuguese football federation read: “Cristiano Ronaldo was released from training with the national team after a positive test for Covid-19, so he will not face Sweden.
“The Portugal international is doing well, without symptoms, and in isolation.
“Following the positive test, the remaining players underwent new tests on Tuesday morning, and all produced a negative result and are available to Fernando Santos for training this afternoon.”
And following news of the outcome of the test, Katia Aveiro expressed her frustration on Instagram: “If Cristiano Ronaldo is the one who has to wake the world up, I have to say that this Portuguese really is an envoy from God. Thank you!
“I believe that today, thousands of people who have come to believe so much in this pandemic, in the tests and the measures taken will, like me, see it is the biggest fraud I’ve seen since I was born.
“A phrase that I read today and that I stood up to applaud: ‘Enough fooling the entire world’. Someone, open your eyes, please.”
Ronaldo was expected to travel to Turin yesterday where he’ll commence a period of quarantine, which will last for an initial 10 days.
