As the world struggles to contain the spread of the coronavirus, a former international footballer, who took part in the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, has now tested positive for the disease.
Former Denmark international Thomas Kahlenberg has been placed under quarantine in his home country after he tested positive for the coronavirus.
According to CNN, the 36-year-old unknowingly contracted the disease during a recent visit to Amsterdam before going to watch former club Brondby compete against Lyngby at the beginning of the month.
Brondby have since placed a number of their staff, including defender Joel Kabongo and assistant coach Martin Retov, under quarantine, and have called on anyone who had contact with Kahlenberg to come forward in order to curb the spread of the disease.
"The authorities are now calling on the individual fans who, during Thomas Kahlenberg's visit to Brondby Stadium, have been in direct physical contact with Thomas Kahlenberg, including his visit to the Fan Zone, Michael Laudrup-Lounge and reception at Brondby Stadium," an official statement read.
"The Danish Patient Safety Board (DPSB) must map everyone who has been in direct physical contact with Thomas Kahlenberg to prevent more people from getting the disease."
Kahlenberg made 47 appearances for Denmark and was part of the Red & Whites squad that competed at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, featuring in all three of his nation's group-stage matches.
