English Championship side Hull City on Sunday confirmed that two people at the club have tested positive for COVID-19.

"Hull City can confirm that two people have tested positive for COVID-19 following the first round of testing at the training ground," a statement on the club's website, hullcitytigers.com, read.

Medical confidentiality means the names will not be disclosed, and the club asks for this to be respected.

"The duo, who are both asymptomatic and feeling no ill effects, will now self-isolate for seven days -- in line with the protocols set out in EFL guidelines -- before being tested again at a later date.

"The club will continue to liaise closely with the affected personnel and will make no further comment," the statement added.

Earlier, Premier League side Bournemouth confirmed that an unnamed player is one of the two new coronavirus positive cases discovered by the latest round of tests.

The Premier League had confirmed two more positive cases of COVID-19 in the second round of testing.

The Premier League said that 996 players and club staff were tested for COVID-19 on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

The clubs have been allowed to start small-group training from Tuesday after the top flight football league in England was suspended on March 13 due to coronavirus outbreak.
