The Scotland Women rugby international who contracted coronavirus has been released from hospital.

The Women’s Six Nations match between Scotland and France on March 7 was postponed after the player tested positive on the eve of the game in Glasgow.

The Scotland squad had earlier returned from a trip to northern Italy, where their clash with the home side had been postponed as the virus spread in the region.

A Scottish Rugby Union statement read: “Scottish Rugby is pleased to confirm the Scotland Women player who contracted coronavirus has now been released from hospital, no longer needs to self-isolate and is feeling back to normal.

“The seven Scotland Women players and staff self-isolating have also been cleared to resume daily life.”
