Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo might be forced to leave his mansion where he is self-isolating due to the recent earthquake in his home town in Funchal, Madeira.
The 35-year-old chose to quarantine himself along with his partner and children in Portugal after the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
Briefly.co.za learnt that it would be recalled that Daniele Rugani was the first of Juve's first team players to contract the deadly virus after their 2-0 win over Inter Milan earlier this month.
The development forced the Old Lady to initiate a total lockdown with all their players put on self-isolation for the 14-day incubation period.
However, Ronaldo decided to lock himself away from others in his hometown in a bid to avoid interacting with anyone who has the virus.
Meanwhile, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid forward has now been threatened with a twin earthquake that rocked the area that is home to around 290 000 people.
Daily Star reports that the first quake hit the Richter Scale at 3.8 last weekend, while just over seven days later another arrived, reaching a 5.2 rating.
The publication claims no life was affected but the debris fell on the roads, thereby causing traffic jams and slow movement.
It was the first time in over 12 years that the island witnessed such magnitude that came 10km under the ground.
Recently, Frenchman Blaise Matuidi confirmed he tested positive for the virus - joining Rugani on the list of Juve stars to have been infected.
Meanwhile, a number of other players and by extension sportsmen have contracted the virus but most of them have assured their fans that they are getting better.
The recent development across the globe has seen most sporting activities postponed as the authorities are monitoring the situation.
