England's Euro 2020 training base at St George's Park has been hit by a Covid scare after a Sky Sports reporter tested positive on Thursday.

As reported by the Daily Mail, a Sky Sports journalist and accompanying camera man were turned away amid intensified Covid protocols.

Following Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell being forced to self-isolate after coming into contact with Billy Gilmour, already stringent practices have been further heightened.

A Sky Sports spokesperson said: "A reporter is isolating in a hotel and awaiting the result of a PCR test.

"The camera operative tested negative and has left St George’s Park to self-isolate."

The Covid scare comes as England prepare to face Germany in next week's last-16 tie at Wembley.

Both Mount and Chilwell will be available having self-isolated for 10 days, though it remains to be seen if they will play a part after being removed from the group.
