Tennis Legend, Rafael Nadal has tested positive for Covid-19.

Nadal recently made a return after a long time out at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship exhibition event in Abu Dhabi last week.

He has now suffered another blow after testing positive to the virus.

"I wanted to announce that on my return home after playing the Abu Dhabi tournament, I have tested positive for COVID in the PCR test that has been performed on me when I arrived in Spain," Nadal wrote on Twitter.

"I am having some unpleasant moments but I hope that I will improve little by little. I am now homebound and have reported the result to those who have been in contact with me," he wrote.

"As a result of the situation I have to have total flexibility with my calendar and I will analyse my options depending on my evolution. I will keep you informed of any decisions about my future tournaments."

He was out of action for four months after battling with a foot injury.
