Bolt sparked fears after entering self-isolation following party last week; source close to Sterling tells SSN: “Raheem feels fine and is showing no symptoms of coronavirus”
Raheem Sterling has tested negative for coronavirus after attending a party with Usain Bolt in Jamaica on Friday.
The eight-time Olympic gold medal winner sparked fears when he entered self-isolation following the event and is awaiting the results of his own test.
However, Sterling has returned a negative result after undergoing the test in Jamaica and will hope to be named in the England squad for next month’s Nations League fixtures, which is announced at 2pm on Tuesday.
Sterling will take another test upon his return to the UK but a source close to the Manchester City winger told Sky Sports News: “Raheem feels fine and is showing no symptoms of coronavirus.”
All England players called up by Gareth Southgate on Tuesday will have to test negative for coronavirus before they are allowed into camp on Monday.
While Sterling’s fears have been eased, Bolt is still awaiting the result of the test he took on Saturday.
In a video posted on social media on Monday, he said: “Saw that social media say that I’m confirmed to have COVID-19. I did a test on Saturday to leave because I have work.
