The same can be said for the French squad who played out a 0-0 draw against Portugal at the start of the week.

But while every player (except CR7) returned a negative result, both players will continued to be monitored for symptoms.

As for goal-scoring machine Ronaldo, he'll now undertake two weeks of compulsory quarantine and is likely to miss a number of Serie A games for Juventus once he returns from international duty.

Juve also play Barcelona in the Champions League in less than two weeks, meaning Ronaldo faces the nervous wait to see whether he's eligible for that huge match too.
