Three-time men's road world champion Peter Sagan has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now isolating. Sagan, his brother Juraj and another member of the Bora-Hansgrohe WorldTour team were tested at the end of a training camp on Gran Canaria; a requirement to return home from the island. All three report mild symptoms.
In a statement on Instagram, Sagan said:
For a few weeks now, my brother Juraj, our teammate Erik Baska, and I have been training in Gran Canaria. On January 29th, we had a PCR test done in a local laboratory in order to be able to fly back home. Unfortunately, the results weren't what we would have hoped for and all three of us tested positive for Covid-19.
We are all feeling well but, obviously, since that day, we have remained in quarantine. From the moment we received the positive test results, we have had the full support of the team and I'd like to thank our manager Ralph Denk and our medical department for this. Although we are thousands of kilometres away and in isolation, we always felt as if we were right next to them.
We are kept under continuous remote supervision and will remain here for as long as required. Hopefully, our next test results will be negative so that we can resume our normal training schedule as soon as possible.
