Ramos is now set to enter a period of self-isolation, in compliance with Spanish health advice and guidelines.

He will not be able to return to the club’s facilities until he returns a negative test for the virus.

He is the second player to test positive for the virus at the club in recent times following his central defensive partner Raphael Varane.

Ramos is out of contract in the Spanish capital in less than three months time and his future at the club remains uncertain, with his deal expiring on 30 June.
