CRISTIANO RONALDO arrived at Bernabeu to support Real Madrid in their El Clasico clash with Barcelona on Sunday evening as coronavirus KO’d Juventus’ game.
The former Los Blancos star, 35, was spotted outside the Bernabeu as he prepared for the monster top-of-the-table LaLiga clash with Barcelona.
Despite fears of spreading coronavirus – with some clubs even banning handshakes – Ronaldo was happy to sign fans’ shirts outside the stadium.
CR7 was supposed to spend his weekend taking on Inter Milan in their huge Serie A title scrap.
But Juventus’ game was called off, along with four other games, and rearranged for May 13 amidst fears of spreading the deadly virus, with Italy currently a hotbed for the disease.
Italy has seen over 1,500 reported cases of coronavirus, with 34 deaths – easily the worst-affected nation in Europe, with 11 towns currently on lockdown.
Juventus have since cancelled all trainingafter their Under-23s side played Pianese.
Since that game, the Serie C side have confirmed three players and their manager have tested positive for the virus.
It is reported that no Juventus player has so far experienced any symptoms of Covid-19.
But they are taking no chances and cancelling all training – with the ban continuing until further notice following the suspension of their Serie A clash with Inter.
Rather than wallow in panic, Ronaldo opted to head to his old stomping ground, the Bernabeu, to watch Real Madrid take on Barcelona.
Barca currently sit two points clear at the top of LaLiga after Los Blancos dropped five points last week.
In a disastrous few days, Zinedine Zidane’s side drew to Celta Vigo 2-2 and lost 1-0 at Levante – while losing Eden Hazard to injury, possibly for the season.
