Talismanic 38-year-old forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has tested positive for COVID-19, Serie A club AC Milan said in a statement on Thursday.
The announcement came one day after his teammate Leo Duarte returned a positive test.
However, AC Milan said the rest of the squad, who were also tested, were negative.
He is the highest-profile Serie A player to test positive since play resumed in June following a three-month stoppage.
One of Europe’s most charismatic players, Ibrahimovic has scored 14 goals in 22 matches since returning for a second stint at Milan in January, helping to revive his team.
He began the new Serie A season in style on Monday by scoring twice in the 2-0 win over Bologna.
