Indian midfielder Navjot Kaur’s campaign at the Commonwealth Games came to an abrupt end as she is set to fly back home after testing positive for COVID-19.
The 27-year-old from Kurukshetra had been in isolation for the past two days.
Navjot, a member of the silver-winning team at Jakarta Asian Games, also won a bronze medal with India in Incheon Games back in 2014.
Her being ruled out of the games comes a day after India won their opening match at the Commonwealth Games 5-0 against Ghana on Friday. They face Wales in their next match today.
