  • Five players test positive for coronavirus, La Liga confirm
Sharjah 24 - AFP: Five players from Spain's top two leagues have tested positive for coronavirus, La Liga confirmed on Sunday.
Players in Spain's top-flight and Segunda division were allowed to carry out individual work at training grounds last week.

The move was the beginning of a staggered training programme, with the aim to restart competitive games in the middle of June.

La Liga insist identifying infected players through positive tests are part of that plan.

The five players, who have not been officially named, will now be quarantined at home and tested again "in the next few days".

They will be allowed to rejoin their club's training programme only after obtaining two consecutive negative test results.
