Georgina Rodriguez sends touching message to Cristiano Ronaldo in WhatsApp video call after positive coronavirus test

GEORGINA RODRIGUEZ called Cristiano Ronaldo her "inspiration" in a touching message after her football superstar partner tested positive for coronavirus.

Rodriguez reacted to news by uploading a screenshot of a Whatsapp video call between them alongside the message: “You are my inspiration” and a heart emoji.

The Spaniard posted the image on her social media.

It appeared to show Cristiano with his head on a pillow as he began his quarantine.

Georgina posted the snap after the Portuguese FA confirmed the Juventus forward was out of his country’s match against Sweden tomorrow night after testing positive for coronavirus.

The statement said: “Cristiano Ronaldo was released from the work of the National Team after a positive test for COVID-19, so he will not face Sweden.

"The Portuguese international is doing well, without symptoms, and in isolation.”

Ronaldo’s doting mum Dolores Aveiro was the first person to be told he had coronavirus, respected Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manha claimed today.

The Juventus striker rushed to her side after she suffered a life-threatening stroke in March.

But on Tuesday it was the mum-of-four’s turn to be worried about her son, although he is said to be “doing well” and “without symptoms.”

She posted a picture of the 35 year-old on social media in a Portuguese top alongside the message: “God gave great battles to great warriors.

“And this is another war you are going to win son.”

His elder sister Elma reposted the WhatsApp video call screen grab Georgia put on her social media, referring to Cristiano as her inspiration.

She appeared to have added to it in Portuguese: “Estamos juntos, meu querido” – English for ‘We are together, my darling.

Ronaldo played his country's last two games, first a friendly against Spain last Wednesday and then France in the Nations League on Sunday.

Both games finished goalless, but the 35-year-old is now out of the match against Sweden tomorrow night.

He will now self-isolate before returning to link up with the Juve squad.

Ronaldo last night uploaded a selfie with his Portugal team-mates, sharing a huge smile to the camera.

He was also pictured hugging France stars Kylian Mbappe and Raphael Varane after their draw.

Rising 17-year-old star Eduardo Camavinga sat on the bench and admired his idol Ronaldo on the pitch.

But afterwards he managed to land the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's shirt and took to Snapchat to share a picture.

He captioned the pic: "I won't wash it.

France play Croatia tomorrow night also.

Since the start of the new season, Neymar, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba all tested positive for the virus.

Premier League champions Liverpool have been hit with four cases within the first-team.

Naby Keita is the latest to test positive, after Thiago Alcantara, Sadio Mane and Xherdan Shaqiri did the same.
