Following the confirmation that Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta has tested positive for coronavirus, Chelsea player Callum Hudson-Odoi has also tested positive.

The London club confirmed the news on Friday, with the Premier League later confirming the suspension of the competition until the beginning of April, when the situation will be revisited. 

Chelsea have therefore taken the decision to shut down the club's training ground and quarantine teammates and staff that have been in contact with Hudson-Odoi. 

The Premier League side said: "Hudson-Odoi had a positive test result for coronavirus returned this evening. Chelsea personnel who had recent close contact with the player in the men’s team building will now self-isolate in line with Government health guidelines. These will include initially the full men’s team squad, coaching staff and a number of the backroom staff.

"It is expected that those who did not have close contact with Callum will return to work in the coming days. In the meantime, the men’s team building, one of several separate buildings at our training ground, will remain closed. The rest of our training facility, Stamford Bridge and our other facilities are operating as normal.

"Callum displayed symptoms similar to a mild cold on Monday morning and has not been at the training ground since then as a precaution. However, his test came in positive this evening and he will undergo a period of self-isolation. Despite testing positive for the virus, Callum is doing well and looking forward to returning to the training ground as soon as it is possible."
