AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has confirmed that he tested positive for coronavirus.
The announcement comes just hours before Milan are due to take on Norwegian side FK Bodo/Glimt in the Europa League third qualifying round on Thursday.
The club say that they have informed the “relevant authorities” and that Ibrahimovic will now enter a period of quarantine at home.
Ibrahimovic tweeted: “I tested negative to COVID yesterday and positive today. No symptoms what so ever.
“Covid had the courage to challenge me. Bad idea.”
