German clubs have returned to training in a bid to resume the league on May 9, 2020, with several precautions taken including social distancing.
But the former Chelsea star made a live video on Facebook as he filmed himself interrupting a teammate who was conducting a test which did not go down well with the Hertha.

"Salomon Kalou was tempted by his negative test results to greet the other players in the dressing room, sometimes with a handshake, contrary to the clear announcements made by health authorities.
"With this video taken inside the team's dressing room, Kalou broke clear internal rules and displayed a behaviour, which is neither appropriate for this current situation, nor reflective of the code of conduct of Hertha BSC.
"The club has therefore made the decision to suspend the player in question from training and matches with immediate effect," Hertha's statement.
Kalou apologized for his actions and his statement was also on the club's official website.
