Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has tested positive for coronavirus, the Egypt Football Association have confirmed.

The 28-year-old is asymptomatic and was the only member of the Egypt squad to return a positive test.

Salah’s enforced absence will be a huge blow to Liverpool, who will also be without Joe Gomez after the England defender suffered an injury while on international duty.

Gomez could miss the majority the season after undergoing surgery to repair a damaged knee tendon.
