Raheem Sterling tested negative for the coronavirus after attending a party with Usain Bolt in Jamaica on Friday.

The eight-time Olympic gold medalist sparked fears when he isolated himself after the event and waited for the results of his own test.

However, Sterling returned negative after being tested in Jamaica and is hoping to be named to the England squad for the Nations League matches next month, which are announced at 2 p.m. on Tuesday.

Sterling will do another test when he returns to the UK, but a source close to the Manchester City winger has said Sky Sports News: “Raheem is feeling good and has no symptoms of coronavirus. “

All England players called up by Gareth Southgate on Tuesday will need to test negative for the coronavirus before being allowed into camp on Monday.

While Sterling’s fears have been assuaged, Bolt is still awaiting the result of the test he took on Saturday.

In a video posted to social media on Monday, he said: “I saw social media saying I am confirmed to have COVID-19. I did a test on Saturday to leave because I have a job.

“I’m trying to be responsible so I’m going to stay and stay here for my friends. Also, I have no symptoms, so I’m going to quarantine myself and wait for confirmation to see what the protocol is and how do I go about quarantining myself from the Department of Health.

“I spoke to all of my friends and told them that if they got in touch with me you should – just to be safe – quarantine on your own and just take it easy.
