Cristiano Ronaldo

Juventus’ star player Cristiano Ronaldo appeared as combative as ever in a social media post on Friday, a day after being accused of breaching Italian coronavirus rules.

“Don’t let what you can’t do stand in the way of what you can do,” he posted on Instagram, along with his picture smiling and relaxing by a swimming pool.

The 35-year-old has been isolating at home in Turin since Wednesday, when he tested positive for the coronavirus.

He left the Portuguese national team ahead of a UEFA Nations League match against Sweden.

On Thursday, Italian Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora said Ronaldo breached Italian virus protocols by flying in and out of Italy to join the Portuguese squad.
