Lionel Messi tests positive for Covid

Lionel Messi has tested positive for Covid-19 and has been placed in self-isolation, according to his club Paris Saint-Germain.

Four PSG players tested positive for the virus before a French Cup match against Vannes, including the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner.

Following an emotional departure from Barcelona last summer, the Argentinian star has had a rocky start to life in Paris.

In 11 league games for PSG, Messi has just one goal, but he has five goals in the Champions League.

He’ll be out of Monday’s cup encounter, as well as PSG’s first Ligue 1 fixture after the winter break, against Lyon next Sunday.

Juan Bernat, Sergio Rico, and Nathan Bitumazala, a young midfielder, were among the other players who tested positive.

This week, the number of Covid cases in France surpassed 200,000 a day.
