Juventus star Paulo Dybala has tested negative for coronavirus after testing positive four consecutive times in the past seven weeks.
The Argentine revealed Wednesday that he has been given the all-clear almost a month-and-a-half after contracting the virus.
“Many people talked in the past weeks … but I can finally confirm that I am healed. Thank you once again for your support and my thoughts on all who are still suffering from it. Take care,” tweeted the 26-year-old.
Dybala alongside teammates Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi had all tested positive for the virus in March.
Rugani was the first Italian top-flight footballer diagnosed with the virus on March 11.
Both he and World Cup winner Matuidi recovered mid-April.
Dybala was diagnosed on March 22, along with his girlfriend Oriana, who recovered sooner from the disease which has killed nearly 30,000 people in Italy.
Dybala also posted a picture of himself on Instagram with his arms outstretched looking at the sky: “My face says it all, I’m finally cured from Covid-19.”
Italian champions Juventus confirmed the news of the striker’s recovery in a press statement.
“Dybala performed, as per protocol, a double check with diagnostic tests (swabs) for Coronavirus-Covid 19, which came back with negative results,”
“The player has, therefore, recovered and will no longer be subjected to the home isolation regime.”
