Covid-19 hits France national football team ahead of internationals


Paris (AFP) – A member of the France national squad Leo Dubois has tested positive for Covid-19 at their training head-quarters in Clairefontaine, the French football federation said on Tuesday.

Having returned a negative test ahead of joining Didier Deschamps’ squad for a series of internationals Dubois took part in a training session ahead of the positive test on Tuesday.
