Indian fans had earlier warned a maskless Rishabh Pant who had attended the England vs Germany Euro match at Wembley stadium.

Rishabh Pant who is currently in England ahead of the five-match Test series has reportedly tested positive for the coronavirus. Pant had turned a positive result more than a week back and is asymptomatic, a report in the Sports Tak noted. It’s worth reminding that Pant was among the attendees at the Wembley stadium to watch an England vs Germany Euro match on June 30. On Wednesday, Britain also recorded the highest number of daily infections since 15 January at 42,302. Catching the match live from the Wembley stadium Pant had posted a few photographs along with a caption saying: “Good experience watching."

The stylish wicketkeeper-batsman was then questioned and warned by the fans about the absence of the face mask, especially in the jam-packed stadium.

“You must be wearing mask. What message are u conveying to the people who follow you. Soch badlo to desh badlega. Anyways be safe," wrote a well-wisher.
