Lionel Messi, the world’s most famous footballer, has tested positive for Covid-19, according to Paris Saint-Germain, just days after he was seen singing and dancing at a concert in Argentina.
The 34-year-old Argentine Legend took advantage of French football’s winter break with his wife, Antonela, and was filmed having fun at a concert in his homeland.
A video on the internet showed Messi and his wife having a good time at a concert in Rosario, Santa Fe.
His club has now confirmed that he has the virus and is self-isolating.
PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino said at a press conference on Sunday, December 2, that Messi was still in Argentina and would not travel until he tested negative.
Messi joins Sergio Rico, Juan Bernat, and Nathan Bitumazala as players who have tested positive for Covid-19.
