Portuguese national team captain Cristiano Ronaldo tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss Wednesday's meeting with League of Nations Sweden, the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) revealed on Tuesday, reported Xinhua.

"Cristiano Ronaldo was released from the work of the National Team after a positive test for COVID-19, so he will not face Sweden. The Portuguese international is doing well, without symptoms and in isolation," reads a note published on the organisation's official website.

Ronaldo is the third player in Portugal to be infected with the novel coronavirus, after Jose Fonte and Anthony Lopes.
