Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki Williams has announced via social media that he has tested positive for coronavirus.

Inaki Williams is the latest La Liga player to test positive for coronavirus.

Over the past few days, a flurry of players in the Spanish top flight have contracted the virus.

Two unnamed players from Atletico, another two from Valencia yesterday and one more from Barcelona earlier today have are some of the recent cases from La Liga.

But Williams announced his status himself via social media.

The 26-year-old confirmed this after taking a test ahead of the club’s preparations for pre-season.

Williams admitted he has no symptoms and will undergo the necessary self-isolation measures in a bid to control the spread of the virus.

“Today they confirmed that I have tested positive in the PCR test. I am asymptomatic and I feel fine. It is time to be at home in isolation until I overcome the virus. I really want to join the preseason,” he posted on his Twitter account.

Williams was ever-present for Athletic Bilbao in the course of the concluded La Liga campaign. He played in all of their 38 games, scoring six goals and recording an assist.
