Official: El Shaarawy positive for Covid-19

Italy winger Stephan El Shaarawy has tested positive for Covid-19, Italy's doctor revealed.

“El Shaarawy feels well and is in good conditions,” ensured Andrea Ferretti ahead of Roberto Mancini's press conference on Tuesday.

“He had a positive swab, with a low viral load which suggests he could be a false positive.

“As per protocol the whole team group was again tested, and the player has also performed a serological test that was negative”.

Italy are due to face Holland in Bergamo in a Nations League clash tomorrow.
