The Premier League has confirmed that six individuals tested this week have tested positive for coronavirus and will enter a seven day self-isolation period.

Clubs in the top-flight approved return to training protocols on Monday and regular testing for players and club staff plays a key-part in Project Restart plans, which aims for matches to resume in mid-June.

The first round of testing has taken place in recent days and it has been confirmed that six out of 748 tests came back positive.

In a statement, the Premier League said: “The Premier League can today confirm that, on Sunday 17 May and Monday 18 May, 748 players and club staff were tested for COVID-19.
