The Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) has announced that its President Ahmad Ahmad has tested positive for the deadly Coronavirus (CPVOD-19).
Ahmad becomes the second top football governing boss to contract the virus after Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) president Gianni Infantino tested positive for the same a few weeks ago.
This comes only a few weeks before African countries resume their 2021 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers in opening weeks of November after they were put on a standstill in March this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ahmad’s infection has however raised tension amongst many stakeholders in the football fraternity around the world, especially the organisers of the CAF qualifiers match.
However, CAF as an organisation are yet to come out and issue a statement about Ahmad’s health condition.
