Borussia Dortmund have been rocked by another positive coronavirus test as Julian Brandt has tested positive.

'Die Schwarzgelben' announced earlier today that Thomas Meunier has tested positive, and Brandt has now received a positive test result as well.

As a result, today's public training was cancelled.

We're deeply disappointed to have to cancel today's public session at short notice because of the test results that we have just received.

"We remain in close contact with the health authorities," said the club in a statement.

"Unfortunately, a training session cannot take place in the form we had planned in light of these latest events. We have intensified our own precautionary measures once more.

"We apologise from the bottom of our hearts and promise that we will soon make up for this session, which everyone including ourselves had been looking forward to."
