Benfica coach Jorge Jesus' pre-match press conference ahead of the match against Belenenses was cancelled. The club announced that the coach could be suffering from a "respiratory infection".

Benfica is one of the clubs most affected by COVID-19. The 'Eagles' have had as many as 19 positives in their ranks.

All the alarm bells are ringing. Benfica issued a statement to say that Jorge Jesus' press conference is cancelled. 

"Benfica informs that their coach Jorge Jesus has been undergoing medical tests throughout the day. The reason, a suspected respiratory infection, the origin of which is currently under investigation," the club wrote.

The organisation wanted to make it clear that "the situation is not serious". It also promised to report on Jorge Jesus' state of health in the coming hours. "We ask that, until then, the coach's privacy be respected," Benfica said.
