Cristiano Ronaldo has come under attack from some medical experts after claiming his three coronavirus tests within the space of two weeks were untrue.
The Juventus striker who tested positive for the disease while on international duty with Portugal has been out of action for two weeks.
Two other tests have been conducted to get the 35-year-old ready for Juve's anticipated Champions League clash with Lionel Messi's Barcelona.
But the Portuguese icon was not cleared to feature in the clash after the third results came out the same.

And CR7 went on social media to discredit the results confirmed by medical experts but he later deleted his post on Instagram.
A screenshot of the post was made, and one of Italy's best know virologist Roberto Burioni said:
“Allow me to welcome our new colleague Cristiano Ronaldo to the ranks of the virologist community. He’ll be very handy when we play the optometrists at five-a-side.”
Newspaper La Stampa also commented on Ronaldo’s post, stating that it is now proven that “quarantine clouds the mind.”
Italian new media outlet La Stampa also commented “quarantine clouds the mind,” after Ronaldo said: "PCR is b*******".
Sports minister of Italy Vincenzo Spadafora also accused the former Real Madrid star player of breaking coronavirus protocols by returning to Turin after the test which Ronaldo denied.
