Salah confirmed to have Covid-19 after initial confusion over Liverpool star's test results

 The Reds forward, who has been on international duty with his country, has tested positive in two successive swabs

The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) confirmed that forward Mohamed Salah has tested positive for coronavirus after initial confusion over the Liverpool star's test result.

The EFA originally announced on Friday that Salah had tested positive before later deleting the statement and putting out a different announcement, saying three players from Egypt and their opponents on Saturday, Togo, tested positive and will have a second test before the match.

But a follow-up statement from the EFA later on Friday confirmed that Salah's second swab had also come back positive, meaning the 28-year-old will now be forced into self-isolation.
