Thank you for all your messages of support for my mum. She is currently stable and recovering in hospital. Me and my family would like to thank the medical team looking after her, and kindly ask that we are all given some privacy at this time.— Cristiano Ronaldo (@Cristiano) March 3, 2020

Cristiano Ronaldo has been staying in Madeira for the past two weeks. The 35-year-old winger had to return to his hometown fearing the growing number of cases of the coronavirus pandemic in Italy. Italy has emerged as the worst affected country by the pandemic in the world.
Three Juventus players tested positive for coronavirus over the last two weeks. Juventus, in three separate statements, confirmed that Daniele Rugani, Blaise Matuidi and Paulo Dybala have contracted the life-threatening virus. The club was quick to grant permission to Cristiano Ronaldo to return to Madeira. It is reported that the Portuguese international has bought an island in the Pacific ocean to undergo self-quarantine along with his family.
