Bournemouth's Ramsdale tests positive for coronavirus

Aaron Ramsdale confirmed he has tested positive for coronavirus.

The Bournemouth and England Under-21 goalkeeper - who tested negative last Monday (18.05.20) before testing positive on Friday (22.05.20) after training - is asymptomatic, and admitted he was "shocked" after contracting COVID-19.

He told SunSport: "It's definitely a shock -- I've not been in contact with anybody and I've now got it.

"I'm showing no symptoms so the fact that a healthy young person could potentially have it is definitely scary and worrying.

"It's obviously not great that I've got it but it's good that I'm showing no symptoms.

"It's one of those things that has unfortunately happened and happened to me."

The AGE-year-old star was one of two positive tests - the other was at a different club yet to be identified - from the second round of 996 Premier League samples, which included staff and players.

Ramsdale - who is the second player to confirm a positive test during the Project Restart process after Watford's Adrian Mariappa - has been isolating with his girlfriend at home in Bournemouth since being told the news.

He added: "When you know you haven't had it, and you've just been following the rules and only gone to the shop, that was obviously scary at first.

"Now I'm in the realisation that I've got it. There are other people who have had it and other people will get it so there's obviously nothing to be ashamed of."
