Gareth South­gate’s plans to name Ra­heem Ster­ling in his Eng­land squad today could be thrown into dis­ar­ray af­ter the Manch­ester City winger re­port­edly at­tended a sur­prise 34th birth­day party in Ja­maica for Usain Bolt, who has since un­der­gone a test for coronaviru­s.

Bolt yes­ter­day said he had un­der­gone a Covid-19 test on Saturday and had gone into self-isolation. The re­sults of the test are not known.

It was un­clear last night what that meant for Ster­ling, who was said to be at Bolt’s party on Friday while on hol­i­day fol­low­ing the end of City’s sea­son.

Bolt, the eight-time Olympic cham­pion, said in a video post on so­cial me­dia: “Good morn­ing, ev­ery­body, just wak­ing up. Like ev­ery­body, I’ve checked so­cial me­dia. So­cial me­dia’s say­ing I’m con­firmed of Covid-19. I did a test on Saturday be­cause I have work.

“I’m try­ing to be re­spon­si­ble so I’m go­ing to stay in and stay here for my friends. I have no symp­toms.

“So, I’m go­ing to quar­an­tine my­self and wait on the con­fir­ma­tion to see what is the pro­to­col.”
