The Premier League has confirmed that the latest round of Covid-19 testing has found just one further case of the virus.
A total of 2,664 players and staff from the 20 clubs were tested twice over the latest period, between March 29 and April 4.
There were fears that the return of players from international duty would bring with it a spike in cases, with several players, including Mohamed Salah, testing positive in the last window for international action in November.
