The player said he is asymptomatic and is currently at his home. Todibo took to Twitter and wrote in Spanish, "Hello everyone, I inform you that I have tested positive for COVID-19, I am asymptomatic and I feel fine. I am at home following the proper sanitary protocol. I really want to go back to training, but now it's time to stay home until the virus is over."
