Dybala is one of three players at Juventus who have tested positive for the virus alongside defender Daniele Rugani and midfielder Blaise Matuidi, a World Cup winner with France in 2018. Players at other Serie A clubs have also tested positive.

“I’ve had strong symptoms, but I’m much better today,” Dybala, 26, told the Juventus television channel.

“Now, I can move and walk and try to work out. A few days ago, when I tried to do those things, I was struggling for breath. My muscles ached.”

Football around the world has been brought to a standstill by the pandemic and Serie A has been suspended since 9 March.
