Football megastar Cristiano Ronaldo called PCR coronavirus tests “cops ***” after testing positive for the third time.
It was a devastating blow to fans eager to see him face old rival Lionel Messi.
The 35-year-old Ronaldo assured fans before the 2-0 defeat that he felt “good and healthy” despite the news.
He tweeted a picture of himself with his new shaved hair with the caption: “Feel good and healthy! Forza Juve! ”
But the ex-Real Madrid star questioned the effectiveness of swab testing when he wrote, “PCR IS BULLS ***”.
He later deleted the comment.
Ronaldo received his PCR test (swab) results on Tuesday – just 24 hours before he was due to play against Barcelona.
The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test is widely used in Australia. The Ministry of Health advises that patients need consecutive negative tests in order to be cleared of the virus rather than isolated.
Ronaldo will now watch the two European heavyweights in his own house and hopes to be back in the Serie A game against Spezia on November 1st.
Juve lost after Ousmane Dembele’s heavily deflected shot opened the goal and Messi scored a late penalty – after Alvaro Morata ruled out three offside goals.
Ronaldo caught the virus for the first time earlier this month while on international service.
The Juve star immediately left the training camp in Portugal and flew to Turin in a private ambulance.
And he got his second positive result last Thursday – nine days after his first diagnosis.
He is currently self-isolating at his Turin home and has reportedly shown no symptoms.
Ronaldo slept separately from partner Georgina Rodriguez and his four children – all of whom returned negative tests.
The former Manchester United star has spent his free time replenishing his tan in his garden.
