In a big blow to Gabon, captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, along with a teammate has tested positive for Covid-19 on his arrival to the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
The news, first published by Sport News Africa, comes just days after the Arsenal outcast was spotted partying with teammates in Dubai.
Gabon will now be without Aubameyang and teammate Mario Lemima, for the tournament, which kicks off on Sunday.
Both players will miss Gabon’s opening two group matches against Comoros, on January 10, and Ghana four days later.
Aubameyang had on Wednesday shared a selfie of himself travelling on the plane heading to Cameroon.
