(LOS ANGELES) -- One day after winning the World Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers said Wednesday that the team will wait to celebrate with the fans “until it is safe to do so.”

While the Dodgers were playing the Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday night, third baseman Justin Turner tested positive for COVID-19 and was pulled from the series-winning game, ESPN reported.

Turner tweeted that he had no symptoms and “just experienced every emotion you can possibly imagine.”

Thanks to everyone reaching out! I feel great, no symptoms at all. Just experienced every emotion you can possibly imagine. Can’t believe I couldn’t be out there to celebrate with my guys! So proud of this team & unbelievably happy for the City of LA#WorldSeriesChamps

Dodgers win World Series, Justin Turner tests positive for COVID-19

(ARLINGTON, Texas) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers secured a World Series win, clinching a 3-1 win in Game 6 against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night in Arlington, Texas.

The Dodgers won the series 4-2, their first title in 32 years.

However, the victory was marred by a positive COVID-19 test from third baseman Justin Turner, who was pulled from the bench.

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred confirmed the positive test after the game, telling Fox: "It's a bittersweet night for us."

Turner was 0-for-3 with two strikeouts before coming out of the game to start the eighth inning. The team did not give a reason for his exit when he left.

"Thanks to everyone reaching out!" Turner wrote on Twitter after the game. "I feel great, no symptoms at all. Just experienced every emotion you can possibly imagine. Can't believe I couldn't be out there to celebrate with my guys! So proud of this team & unbelievably happy for the City of LA #WorldSeriesChamps."

Sources told ESPN's Jeff Passan that in the second inning, the lab doing COVID-19 tests informed Major League Baseball that Turner's test from Monday came back inconclusive. Samples taken from Tuesday then arrived and were run, sources said, and they showed up positive. The league then immediately called the Dodgers and said to pull Turner.

He was replaced in the field by Edwin Rios.

The veteran infielder was not with his teammates as they celebrated the franchise's first World Series title since 1988. His teammates were wearing masks while on the Globe Life Field infield after the game.

When the Dodgers return to their hotel later Tuesday night, everybody will be given a rapid PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test, sources told Passan.

(NEW YORK) -- The head of international soccer, Gianni Infantino, has tested positive for coronavirus, FIFA announced in a statement Tuesday.

The organization said Infantino has mild symptoms and has immediately placed himself in self-isolation. The 50-year-old FIFA president will remain isolated for at least 10 days.  

Anyone who has come into contact with Infantino in the last several days has been informed of his positive test results.

Infantino recently visited Qatar, site of the 2022 World Cup, where he said he could not imagine a tournament without fans. He said there was sufficient time to contain the pandemic by the winter of 2022.  

This year the coronavirus pandemic has stopped some soccer competitions for the first time since World War II.
