Gareth Bale suffers coronavirus scare

Gareth Bale concerned about catching COVID while on Wale duty.

Bale’s club teammate Matt Doherty and Stoke midfielder James McClean both tested positive for the coronavirus after Wales’ 1-0 Nations League win on Sunday.

Both teammates later exchanged shirts after the match and Bale is now concerned about potentially exposing himself but he has since tested negative.

Gareth Bale said: “It’s a slight concern for everybody when you’ve been playing someone and you’re in close contact with them on the field.

“Maybe you’re not long enough with them to catch it but you’re a bit wary.

“It’s good news that everyone’s come back and tested negative and now we can just concentrate on the game on Wednesday.”

He added: “Me and Ben have spoke to him briefly and he’s doing fine, he’s just got mild symptoms.

“Hopefully he recovers fine, doesn’t have any problems and will be back playing as soon as possible.”
