Juventus have confirmed that Italy centre-back Daniele Rugani has tested positive for coronavirus.

The club say they are “activating all the isolation procedures required by law”, including those that have been in contact with Rugani.

The 25-year-old is “currently asymptomatic”.

Rugani has made just seven appearances for Juventus this season and was left on the bench for the 2-0 win over Inter behind closed doors on Sunday.

All sport in Italy is suspended until 3 April, with the country in lockdown because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Inter – whose Europa League clash with Getafe has been postponed – said “all competitive activities are suspended until further notice” following Rugani’s positive test.

They added: “The club is taking steps to prepare all necessary procedures.”

Here’s the full list of fixtures affected by coronavirus.
