Bayern Munich have confirmed that forward Thomas Muller has tested positive for coronavirus and will miss today’s Club World Cup final with Tigres in Qatar.

Despite that, the match will still go ahead at 6pm, UK time, after the rest of the team returned negative results following another round of testing today.

There had been doubts about whether the decider could take place, with Muller a close contact of the squad, having played in Monday’s 2-0 semi-final win over Al-Ahly.

Bayern have confirmed Muller tested positive for Covid-19 and was immediately placed into "isolation" in Doha, and that he will go into quarantine on his return to Germany.
