Juventus and Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo has recovered from a COVID-19 infection, the Serie A club said on Friday.

The 35-year-old has missed one Portugal match and four Juventus games, including their UEFA Champions League clash with FC Barcelona, since he tested positive on Oct. 13.

“Cristiano Ronaldo has undergone a test today,” said Juventus in a statement. “The result of the test was negative.

“The player has therefore recovered after 19 days and is no longer subject to the home isolation regime.”

Juventus’ next match is away to Spezia in Serie A on Sunday.
