Catalan radio station RAC1 reported on Tuesday that five players from FC Barcelona and two members of the coaching staff tested positive for the COVID-19 in tests carried out by the Spanish football league (La Liga) at the start of May.

The radio station, which has close links to the club, did not name any of the players or staff who could have been infected, but highlights that they have all overcome the virus and generated antibodies.

The news comes the day after Spain's football clubs were finally allowed to begin training with their full squads as they put the finishing touches to return to action next week as the Liga Santander and Liga SmartBank (first and second divisions) come back after a break of over 3 months due to COVID-19.

The league leaders play their first game after the restart away to Mallorca on June 13th.
