"Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi underwent, as per protocol, a double check with diagnostic tests (swabs) for the coronavirus -COVID-19," Juventus said on their website.

“The tests came back with negative results. The players have, therefore, recovered and are no longer subjected to the home isolation regime.”

The Serie A has been suspended since 9 March but the Italian football federation is hoping clubs can resume training with precautionary measures in place after the current lockdown in Italy ends on 3 May.

In Italy, one of the countries hardest-hit by the outbreak, the coronavirus has infected more than 165,000 people and killed over 21,000, a Reuters tally shows. Globally, the number of infections has crossed 2 million.
