His absence from the Champions League fixture against Barcelona will prevent fans from watching Ronaldo vs. Lionel Messi in the group stage.

The 35-year-old had already been diagnosed with coronavirus while on international duty with Portugal earlier this month.

But nine days after the initial positive test, Ronaldo is still infectious.

Juventus were hoping to have Ronaldo fit for their second Champions League group stage match after he was unavailable for selection against Dynamo Kiev.

Ronaldo, who has been unable to use the club's training facilities, will remain in quarantine per protocols.

He has been keeping busy and staying fit in his home gym.

He shared a clip of himself working out with a motivational quote on social media.

"Success in life is not measured by what you achieve, but by the obstacles you overcome," he wrote on Twitter with a video of him working out on an exercise bike.

Ronaldo, of course, will also miss this weekend's Serie A fixture against Verona.
