Arsenal have confirmed that manager Mikel Arteta has tested positive for coronavirus on Thursday.

"Our London Colney training centre has been closed after head coach Mikel Arteta received a positive COVID-19 result this evening," an Arsenal club statement read.

"Arsenal personnel who had recent close contact with Mikel will now self-isolate in line with Government health guidelines.

We expect this to be a significant number of people from Colney, including the full first-team squad and coaching staff, as well as a smaller number of people from our Hale End Academy which we have also temporarily closed as a precaution.

We expect those who did not have close contact with Mikel to return to work in the coming days. In the meantime our Colney and Hale End training centres will undergo a deep clean and our other club sites are operating as normal." (Arsenal)
