A top defender for Real Madrid tests positive for Coronavirus

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos tested positive for Covid-19 on Tuesday, the club reported, although he was already ruled out of the Champions League match with Liverpool because of a calf injury.

 Madrid released a statement stating that Ramos tested positive in the most recent Covid-19 test he had performed. Ramos is the second player to be detected with a coronavirus in the Real Madrid team in a week. A positive test came back last Tuesday from Raphael Varane. 

The official green light has still not been given to Varane to rejoin his teammates. 

Ramos suffered an injury to his left calf while on international duty for Spain, but he has continued to play since then.

His positive test means that he has to stay away from his teammates until his tests are negative. 

It has been a challenging season for the 35-year-old defender -- he underwent knee surgery in February and, after returning, missed the Liga match against Celta Vigo a couple of weeks ago because of a shin injury. 

Real Madrid does not know what Ramos' plans are when his contract expires on June 30.
