Cristiano Ronaldo was recently tested positive for coronavirus, but his sister senses that the whole thing is a funny business.

The Portuguese football federation on Tuesday announced that Cristiano Ronaldo had contracted COVID-19.

The Juventus forward, who was on international duty at the time, was therefore forced to sit out the Nations League match against Sweden.

A day after he was diagnosed with the virus, however, the superstar footballer’s sister took to social media to go on an explosive rant, calling the whole development a ‘fraud’.

Katia Aveiro wrote in an Instagram post: “If Cristiano Ronaldo is the one who has to wake the world up, I have to say that this Portuguese really is an envoy from God. Thank you!

“I believe that, today, thousands of people who have come to believe so much in this pandemic, in the tests and the measures taken will, like me, see it is the biggest fraud I’ve seen since I was born.

“A phrase that I read today and that I stood up to applaud: ‘Enough fooling the entire world’. Someone, open your eyes, please.”

Now in Turin, CR7 is currently observing a period of self-isolation.

His quarantine is set to last for an initial 10 days which means he will be unavailable for Juve’s Serie A outing against Crotone on October 17. He will then also miss the Champions League group stage opener against Dynamo Kyiv three days later.

A subsequent second positive test could also see Ronaldo miss the Champions League clash against Lionel Messi’s FC Barcelona.
