Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo, has been cleared to return to the team after testing negative for COVID-19.
The Serie A side confirmed the news on Friday in a statement on their official website.
“Cristiano Ronaldo carried out a check with a diagnostic test (swab) for Covid-19,” the statement read.
“The exam provided a negative result. The player has, therefore, recovered after 19 days and is no longer subjected to home isolation.”

Ronaldo will now be eligible to return for the Old Lady’s Serie A clash against Spezia on Sunday, after he missed out on the club’s previous four matches.
The 35-year-old originally tested positive for coronavirus on October 13, 2020, while on international duty with Portugal, forcing him to miss his country’s 3-0 win over Sweden the following day.
Upon his return to Juventus, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star was forced to miss four consecutive games, as he failed to produce a negative test.
He was unable to play, as the Italian champions drew Crotone and Verona in Serie A.
Ronaldo also missed out on a Champions League win over Dynamo Kiev and the 2-0 defeat to Barcelona on Tuesday.
