And now the ex-Shakhtar Donetsk winger is back with his wife and children, with the consent of his Stamford Bridge bosses.

The Premier League will be suspended until April 30 at the earliest, with all clubs shut down and top stars training at home.

Chelsea's England forward Callum Hudson-Odoi is recovering well after testing positive for coronavirus earlier in the month, with the Blues confirming his progress back towards full health on Monday.

"We are pleased to report Callum Hudson-Odoi is now feeling fine and back to his usual self following the period of self-isolation required after the player tested positive for COVID-19," read a statement on Chelsea's website.

"In addition to feeling good, the young winger is hard at work training at home to build and maintain his fitness, as are the rest of the Chelsea squad."
