Three players at Premier League club Leicester City have shown symptoms of coronavirus and have been isolated, the team's manager has said.
"We've had a few players that have shown symptoms and signs (of coronavirus). We've followed procedures and (as a precaution) they have been kept away from the squad," Brendan Rodgers said.
"We've self-isolated the three of them and we'll see how that develops in the next couple of days.

"This is about health, this is more than football. This is about players and their families, so any risks that are there for their health and everyone else's, we have to mitigate against that.
"The game is all about the players and the fans. If you have one of those not there, it's obviously not the same."
Leicester's next match is at Watford on Saturday lunchtime.
The future of this season's Champions League, Europa League and this summer's European Championships could be decided next week.
