“The Premier League can today confirm that on Monday 15 June and Tuesday 16 June, 1,541 players and club staff were tested for COVID-19. Of these, one person has tested positive,” the league said in a statement on Thursday.
However, the identity and club of the individual were not revealed.
Testing will be done twice in a week to ensure the season, which was suspended in March because of the pandemic, can be completed by the end of July.
