AC Milan defender Theo Hernandez had a "false positive" for coronavirus last weekend while teammates Ante Rebic and Rade Krunic have both now recovered, the Italian league leaders confirmed on Thursday.

"Both Rebic and Krunic underwent a molecular swab test with negative results and this morning had the medical exams required to resume professional activity," AC Milan said.

"Further examinations have shown that Theo Hernández was a 'false positive', the team added.

"The documentation has been provided to the health authorities and the player can now resume training."
