ATHENS (Reuters) - The Dutch coach of the Greek national soccer team, John van 't Schip, has tested positive for coronavirus, the team said on Tuesday.

The 56-year old will remain in quarantine for 14 days, the national team said on its official Twitter account. Schip, a former Dutch international who played for Ajax, took over the Greek squad last July.
