Three Portsmouth players have tested positive for coronavirus

Portsmouth have announced that three of their players have contracted COVID-19.

The League One club's James Bolton, Andy Cannon and Sean Raggett are all in self isolation after receiving positive test results last night. The club have also notified Public Health England and insist they're following government guidelines.

Portsmouth say all players and first team staff were tested earlier in the week and they are still waiting for approximately half of the results.

“I received the news last night and immediately spoke to Kenny and head physio Bobby Bacic," Pompey's Chief executive Mark Catlin confirmed. "Kenny and I then spoke to all three players.

“Football is not immune from this virus and I can assure you that it only really hits home when those that you know contract it.

“All three players were in good spirits and perfectly calm – showing mild or no symptoms – and are looking forward to overcoming it as quickly as possible".
