Juventus players Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi have recovered from COVID-19, the Italian football club announced on Wednesday.

In a statement, Juventus said both players underwent “a double check” and the test results were negative.

“The players have, therefore, recovered and are no longer subjected to the home isolation regime,” read the statement.

French World Cup winner Matuidi tested positive on March 18, less than a week after Italian defender Rugani was diagnosed with COVID-19 on March 12.

The 25-year-old Rugani was the first player in the Italian Serie A to test positive for the coronavirus.
