Swedish football star Zlatan Ibrahimovic tested positive for COVID-19, becoming COVID-19’s highest-profile Series A player since play resumed in Italy following a three-month hiatus due to the pandemic in June.

Following the test carried out before the team’s Europa League tie against Norwegian side Bodo / Glimt on Thursday, the 38-year-old AC Milan striker was placed in quarantine at home, the Italian club said.

The announcement came a day after a positive test was returned by his Brazilian team-mate Leo Duarte as well.

“All other team members and employees have tested negative,” the club said on its website in a statement.

In his inimitable style, the veteran forward, who said he had not experienced any symptoms, responded to the diagnosis.
