Cristiano Ronaldo has tested positive for the coronavirus.

The 35-year-old is now self-isolating and will miss Portugal's UEFA Nations League Group C game versus Sweden on Wednesday.

"Cristiano Ronaldo was released from the work of the National Team after a positive test for COVID-19, so he will not face Sweden," said a statement from the Portuguese Football Federation.

"The Portuguese international is doing well, without symptoms, and in isolation.

"Following [Ronaldo's] 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."

News of Ronaldo's positive test comes less than a day after he posted a picture of himself sharing a meal with his Portugal teammates ahead of the Sweden game.

Ronaldo is the latest in a line of prominent soccer players, including Brazilian star Neymar and France's Kylian Mbappe, to contract the virus.
