Sergio Aguero has announced he has tested positive for coronavirus.
The Manchester City striker had been self-isolating after being identified as a close contact of another confirmed case.
Now the 32-year-old has revealed he too has proved positive.
The Argentinian tweeted: “After a close contact, I’ve been self-isolating and the latest test I took was positive for Covid-19.
“I had some symptoms and I’m following doctor’s orders for recovery. Take care, everyone!”
It is yet another setback for City’s record goalscorer, who has started just three matches this season.
Aguero missed the end of last term and the start of the current campaign after undergoing knee surgery in June.
