Rafael Nadal tested positive for coronavirus in Spain
New Delhi : Tennis player Rafael Nadal has tested positive for coronavirus on his return to Spain from Abu Dhabi where he took part in an exhibition tournament last week.
"I am going through some unpleasant moments but I trust that I will improve little by little. I am now confined at home and have informed the people who had been in contact with me," he wrote on Twitter.
"As a consequence of the situation, I have to have total flexibility with my calendar and I will analyse my options depending on my evolution," the 35-year-old added.
"I will keep you informed of any decisions about my future tournaments."
He was scheduled to fly to Melbourne later this month to compete in an ATP event ahead of the Australian Open.
The 20-time major champion has struggled with a foot injury for the past six months -- forcing him to miss both Wimbledon and the US Open.
