And there are fears over Maguire after an outbreak of the virus at a Greek court where he appeared following his arrest over a brawl.

England boss Gareth Southgate will today name Sterling in his squad for the Nations League games against Iceland on September 5 and Denmark three days later.

But the Manchester City striker will have to take a Covid-19 test before joining the rest of the squad.

A source said: “This double blow has given Gareth a real headache.”

The 25-man squad is due to meet up on Sunday and Monday.

Sterling was pictured at Bolt’s 34th birthday party on Friday.

Bolt today said he was self­isolating — but did not confirm a Jamaican radio station’s claim he had tested positive for Covid-19

A source said: “Raheem feels fine and is showing no symptoms.”
