According to Gabon publication, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has tested positive for Covid-19 on his arrival in Yaounde, Cameroon ahead of the African Cup of Nations.
Having undertaken a rapid antigen test (lateral flow), the Arsenal striker is now awaiting the results of a follow-up PCR test to confirm whether or not he needs to go into isolation.
The report claims the player had tested negative before leaving Dubai where Gabon held a pre-tournament training camp.
Former Southampton player Mario Lemina and assistant coach Yala Anicet have also tested positive.
News of the positive cases comes after Aubameyang and Lemina were filmed ‘partying’ in Dubai.
