According to a statement from the Portuguese Football Federation (PFF), the Juventus forward is “doing well, without symptoms, and in isolation”.

The PFF confirmed in a statement: “Following the positive case, the remaining players underwent new tests this Tuesday morning, all with a negative result, and are available to Fernando Santos for training this afternoon, in Cidade do Futebol.

“The game (against Sweden), counting for the qualification phase of the Nations League, is scheduled for Wednesday, at 19:45, in Alvalade.”

The rest of Portugal squad tested negative for the virus and will be available for the Group A3 match in Lisbon.

Ronaldo had, on Monday, posted an image of himself with the squad around a long table during a meal, with the caption: “United, on and off the field”.

The 36-year-old has played in both of Portugal’s matches so far during the international break, starting in a friendly against Spain in Lisbon and then playing the full game in their 0-0 draw with France on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Portugal are seven points level with France and currently topping the group on goal difference.
