Arteta has however said he hopes to be back as soon as he’s allowed.

“This is really disappointing but I took the test after feeling poorly.

“I will be at work as soon as I’m allowed.”

Arsenal revealed they have closed their London Colney training ground after the result.

In a statement, they wrote: “Our London Colney training centre has been closed after head coach Mikel Arteta received a positive COVID-19 result this evening.

“Arsenal personnel who had recent close contact with Mikel will now self-isolate in line with Government health guidelines.

“We expect this to be a significant number of people from Colney, including the full first-team squad and coaching staff, as well as a smaller number of people from our Hale End Academy which we have also temporarily closed as a precaution.

“We expect those who did not have close contact with Mikel to return to work in the coming days.

“In the meantime our Colney and Hale End training centres will undergo a deep clean and our other club sites are operating as normal.”
