BUENOS AIRES, Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- Football legend Diego Maradona was quarantined on Tuesday at his residence in Argentina after one of his bodyguards came down with symptoms of COVID-19, according to his press agent Sebastian Sanchi.

The bodyguard of the former footballer, and now coach of Argentine football club Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata, is to undergo a test on Thursday to determine whether he has COVID-19, Sanchi told Xinhua.

"If he tests positive, Maradona will have to be swabbed (for the virus) like it or not," added Sanchi.

Earlier this month, Maradona, who will turn 60 on Friday, had tested negative for COVID-19.
