Real Madrid basketball team’s French forward Fabien Causeur has contracted the novel coronavirus, the Spanish powerhouse said on Sunday.

“After the last COVID-19 tests carried out on our basketball first team, our player Fabien Causeur has tested positive,” Real Madrid said on website.

Still a member of the French national team, Causeur, 33, made his way to Real Madrid in 2017 to win the 2018 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague title with the Spanish club.

Last year Real Madrid extended Causeur’s deal until 2022.
