The former Everton  and Manchester United  player is currently lining up for Chinese Super (CSL) side Shandong Luneng and arrived by train in Jinan on March 20 when the positive test was taken. 

Fellaini, 32, is the first CSL player to test positive for coronavirus to date, with that competition, like around the world, currently suspended indefinitely.

Taking to Twitter on Sunday morning, the Belgian said: “Dear friends, I have been tested for coronavirus and my test result is positive.
