Recber hospitalized

Former Turkish national team and ex-Barcelona goalkeeper Rustu Recber is in hospital after testing positive for coronavirus, his wife said. Recber, 46, took on hero status in Turkey as he kept goal at the 2002 World Cup, anchoring his team to the semifinals and ultimately third place, its greatest performance at the tournament. “Rustu is in hospital with a COVID-19 diagnosis,” Isil Recber said on Instagram late on Saturday. “We are in a state of shock after the symptoms developed rapidly while everything was normal.” She added that she, as well as their son and daughter, had tested negative.
