A Bournemouth player is one of the two positive tests for coronavirus to emerge from the testing, the club said on Sunday.

The team said “medical confidentiality means the player’s name will not be disclosed” and added that he will self-isolate for seven days before being tested again at a later date.

The league tested 996 players and club staff on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.

In the first round of tests of 748 people, there were six positives from three clubs. All are in seven days of self-isolation.
In the second round, the number of tests available to each club was increased from 40 to 50.
