Although Chelsea star, Callum Hudson-Odoi has insisted he is fully fit after testing positive for coronavirus.

The entire Blues first-team, coaches and support staff have since entered isolation, putting Saturday’s match with Aston Villa in serious doubt.

Juventus defender Rugani became the second professional footballer to test positive, with Hannover 96 defender Timo Hubers also currently in quarantine.

Also, Manchester full back Benjamin Mendy was at the centre of a coronavirus scare today after a family member fell ill at his home.

The defender has been ordered to self-isolate after the relative came down with respiratory problems at his £4.8million Cheshire mansion.
