German club Kaiserslautern said Wednesday it had halted team training after three suspected positive tests for coronavirus.

The four-time German champions, now in the third division, said the three people concerned will be re-tested during the day.

They, and anyone who came into contact with them, have been placed in strict quarantine.

The two top divisions of the Bundesliga resumed the season behind closed doors last weekend after a two-month suspension, but play in the third division is suspended until 30 May.

Players, coaches and backroom staff are being regularly tested for the virus.
