Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy was among Senegal players to be sidelined by coronavirus at the African Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Mendy, defender and captain of the national team Kalidou Koulibaly and striker Famara Diedhiou tested positive on Saturday in a mandatory Covid test for the Senegal squad two days ahead of their opening game of the African Cup against Zimbabwe, the Senegal Football Federation said.
