Cristiano Ronaldo ain’t out of the woods yet … he reportedly tested positive for COVID again, which means he won’t be able to join his Juventus teammates to take on Barcelona next week.
Remember, the 35-year-old soccer superstar initially popped for COVID last week (it was announced Oct. 13) — and was sent home from practicing with the Portugal national team.
CR7 has since been posting photos on social media showing him training and relaxing in his mansion — with a big ol’ smile on his face.
He even posted a pic of his freshly-shaved head on Thursday morning — flaunting a ridiculously expensive watch.
But, behind the scenes, Ronaldo — one of the top athletes on the planet — is still battling coronavirus, according to Spanish outlet Marca.com.
The new positive test means he’ll have to miss at least another week of action before he can join his Champions League club Juventus, which is scheduled to take on Lionel Messi’s Barca squad on Wednesday.
It’s heartbreaking news — EVERYONE was looking forward to Ronaldo vs. Messi!
But, in order to be cleared to participate in a UEFA match, a player must test negative for an entire week before a game … and now that’s off the table.
Sucks, but if you’re gonna have to self-isolate for another week — at least Ronaldo has a gigantic mansion to enjoy … with a private pool, gym, etc.
