Liverpool will continue with their pre-season training camp in Austria amid reports a member of the travelling party has tested positive for coronavirus.

The Premier League champions are preparing for the new campaign in Saalfelden in the Salzburg region, where an unnamed member of the group has tested positive and entered isolation while they await the results of a second test.

The club were silent on the positive test on Tuesday, including whether it had been provided by a player, but The Telegraph reported the individual in question has been placed in self-isolation for 10 days in line with Government guidance.

Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robinson were all pictured out on their bikes in the Austrian mountains, and during a training session on Tuesday.

All members of the travelling party were tested for the virus before travel, upon arrival and throughout the camp so far.

Jurgen Klopp's side are due to begin their campaign in just over a week, starting with the Community Shield against FA Cup winners Arsenal on August 29.

They had been due to head to Evian for pre-season but made a late switch to Austria after France was added to the United Kingdom's quarantine list.

Players and staff had previously been on holiday for three weeks since the end of the Premier League season on July 26.

Manager Jurgen Klopp warned before they left, saying: “The boys can go on holiday, obviously, and we know from everybody where they will go, and it’s all okay – these countries are all completely fine."
