Juventus forward Paulo Dybala says he and his partner Oriana Sabatini are feeling better after confirming both had contracted the coronavirus on Sunday afternoon.

The Argentine became the latest Serie A player to confirm he had tested positive for the virus, as the pandemic continues to cause a national emergency and take the lives of hundreds of people a day.

“I am fine, I am feeling much better after the strong symptoms I had a couple of days ago,” Dybala said as he spoke to Juventus TV.

“Today I am already better, without symptoms. I can move better, I am also walking and trying to start training.”

Despite confirming he is trying to get back into training, Dybala didn’t downplay the severity of the coronavirus.

“In the first few¬†days I was struggling to breathe and I couldn’t do anything, after five minutes I was struggling,” he added.

“I felt heavy and I had to stop. Now I’m better, as is Oriana.”
