After the athlete received the test results, he left the location of the national team and went to quarantine. It is reported that his disease is asymptomatic, so he will recover without medical help.
In the past few days, Ronaldo has played two games as part of the national team — he went out on the field against France and Spain and had contact with a number of leading soccer stars, not to mention the Portuguese national team players with whom he posed together for dinner a few hours before the news announcement. But this morning, Ronaldo’s teammates passed new tests, which none of them were diagnosed with.
