As the coronavirus continues to disrupt football activities around the world, a Juventus star has now reportedly tested positive for the virus for the fourth time in six weeks.
Bianconeri forward Paulo Dybala has reportedly tested positive for the coronavirus for the fourth time in the space of a month and a half, having first been diagnosed on 21 March.
That is according to El Chiringuito de Jugones with it being claimed that Dybala, who is currently asymptomatic and self-isolating at home in Turin, recently underwent further tests that yielded another positive reading.
The Argentina international had previously opened up on the experiences he and his girlfriend Oriana Sabatini – who, at the time, also tested positive – went through after first developing symptoms of the coronavirus.

"I developed strong symptoms, but today I already feel much better," he told Juventus' official YouTube account last month.
"Now I can move better, walking and trying to train. I could hardly breathe, I couldn't do anything after five minutes. My muscles ached. Fortunately, Oriana and I are better now."
Dybala is not the only player who has been unable to shake the coronavirus, with Atalanta goalkeeper Marco Sportiello having tested positive, then negative, then positive again, per Football Italia.
