Egyptian FA said on Twitter Mohamed Salah has tested positive for coronavirus; Liverpool forward not suffering from any symptoms and other members of the Egypt team negative; Liverpool's next game is at home to Leicester on November 21

The governing body added the rest of the Egypt team were negative for coronavirus, while Salah is now self-isolating and will be "subject to more checks in the coming hours".

Egypt host Togo on Saturday in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier before playing the reverse fixture on Tuesday.

Salah would miss under current UK Government guidelines despite being asymptomatic.

The Government website states: "If you do not have symptoms but have tested positive for COVID-19, stay at home and self-isolate for 10 days from the day the test was taken."

It would also make him a doubt for the home Champions League tie against Atalanta on November 25 given he is unable to train with his club team-mates.
