Kylian Mbappe has been tested for coronavirus

Kylian Mbappe has been tested for coronavirus, according to L’Equipe.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker has been ill in the past week, suffering from severe angina.

Therefore, as a precaution, he was tested on Tuesday to find out if he’s picked up the virus.

The Frenchman is still waiting for his results but it’s believed he’s not affected. French journalist Julien Maynard later revealed that the test came back negative.

PSG’s Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday is already being played behind closed doors – like many matches around Europe.

Serie A has been suspended until April 3, while in France’s Ligue 1 matches with more than 1,000 supporters will be played behind closed doors until April 15.

In La Liga, all fixtures for the next two weeks will also be played behind closed doors.

It seems it’s only a matter of time before the Premier League follow suit.

Meanwhile, reports suggest that UEFA are considering cancelling both the Champions League and Europa League after the last-16. While there must now be serious doubts over Euro 2020, which is being held all over Europe.

Earlier on Tuesday, Nottingham Forest and Olympiacos owner tested positive for coronavirus.

A Forest club statement read: “Nottingham Forest can confirm that owner Evangelos Marinakis has tested positive for the coronavirus.

“Mr Marinakis was diagnosed after showing the first symptoms on his return to Greece yesterday afternoon. During his short stay in Nottingham last week he did not show any symptoms of the virus.

“The club are seeking advice from medical professionals and the relevant governing bodies to ensure the correct measures are taken. Until this time the club will be making no further comment.”
