Christiano Ronaldo In Quarantine After Team-mate Tested Positive For COVID-19

Cristiano Ronaldo is remaining in quarantine in his Madeira home after Juventus team-mate Daniele Rugani tested positive for coronavirus. 
The Portuguese star flew to his homeland to visit his mother, who recently suffered a stroke, before the news broke and must stay put rather than fly back to northern Italy where the outbreak is at its most rampant. 
Ronaldo and Rugani shared a dressing room on Sunday when Juventus beat Inter Milan 2-0 behind closed doors. 
Everyone who came into contact with Rugani on both sides has now required to be in isolation.
It is hoped that the spread is limited as Rugani remained an unused substitute for Maurizio Sarri on the Juventus bench. 
All sporting events in Italy have been cancelled until at least April 3 but Juventus are scheduled to face Lyon in the Champions League next Tuesday. 
That game is due to be played behind closed doors but is now widely expected to be postponed by UEFA. 
Rugani is the second professional footballer to test positive, with Hannover 96 defender Timo Hubers currently in quarantine.
