Manchester City star Benjamin Mendy could be at the centre of a coronavirus scare after it was reported a family member fell ill at his home.

The left-back has reportedly been ordered to self-isolate after a relative came down with respiratory problems at his Cheshire home.

Witnesses told The Sun that paramedics in hazmat suits were called to the property on Thursday.

One said: “An ambulance and a rapid response car turned up at about 11am. A medic got out in a hazmat suit – it was like something off a horror film.
