Callum Hudson-Odoi was the first Premier League player who was confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19 back in March. But the 19-year-old quickly recovered from the virus and is back fit ahead of the season’s resumption.

However, Hudson-Odoi went against lockdown rules and also risked his health, having been arrested on Sunday after a 4 am row with a model he met online and allegedly invited to her house.

Hudson-Odoi is said to have met the woman online and asked her to visit his penthouse after exchanging a number of ‘flirty’ messages.

The Metropolitan Police said of the incident: “Police and London Ambulance Service were called at 03:53hrs on Sunday 17 May to a report of an unwell woman.”

While Hudson-Odoi was arrested, the woman was taken to hospital after complaining of feeling ‘unwell’.

The 19-year-old winger was given the green light to take part in the club’s training on Tuesday, from club medics after a Covid-19 test came back negative.

As per the Premier League rules, players are expected to be tested frequently to ensure that the risk of infecting players with coronavirus is low.
