After almost three weeks since he tested positive for coronavirus, it appears Ronaldo might be allowed to end self-isolation.

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo is still positive for Covid but reports in Italy claim he can end self-isolation in three days since he is asymptomatic.

He tested positive for coronavirus on October 13 and has not returned a negative swab test since then.

Ronaldo has never had symptoms and has remained in quarantine for the last 18 days.

According to Tuttosport, the protocol approved by the Technical-Scientific committee in Italy allows asymptomatic people with a low viral load to leave self-isolation after 21 days as it is impossible for them to infect other people.

Regardless, Ronaldo would still not be allowed to play a game until he tests negative.

As per the report, he could return to training on Tuesday but it remains unclear whether he would be allowed to participate in group training.

Juventus are due to face Spezia on Sunday and Ferencvaros in the Champions League on Wednesday. There is still no official word on when next Ronaldo will get on the pitch.

He must test negative 48 hours before a Serie A game and 24 hours before a Champions League match to be eligible to play.
