Real Madrid's Martin Ødegaard has tested positive for coronavirus, according to Spanish programme Onda Madrid on Tuesday evening.

Ødegaard reported as Covid-19 positive

The channel has stated that after the standard tests carried out on the squad members upon arrival from San Sebastián, the Norwegian was found to be positive. The midfielder trained with the team on Tuesday before the test results were known, so the protocol deems that the other players will now have to undergo new PCR tests to rule out more being infected.

After Mariano contracted the virus at the end of July, if confirmed, this would be the second positive case within the Real Madrid squad. Now, the young footballer must isolate himself at home for the appropriate quarantine period before being able to return to group training.

Following the 0-0 opening day draw against Real Sociedad, Ødegaard will now miss, at least, the next game against Real Betis.
