Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has survived his infection with the coronavirus and is allowed to end his quarantine.

The 35-year-old attacker had tested negative for the virus and is therefore considered recovered, his club Juventus announced on Friday evening.

The football professional can now leave his self-isolation at home and could already be available to the Serie A club on Sunday in the league game at promoted La Spezia.

The Portuguese star had to spend a total of 19 days in quarantine after his infection and, among other things, missed the prestigious clash in the Champions League with FC Barcelona, which Juve lost 2-0 last Wednesday.

The Turin team also had to play two games in Serie A and the away game at Dynamo Kiev (2-0) without their superstar.

Ronaldo was diagnosed with a coronavirus infection on October 13 while staying with the national team.
