Gabon will now be without their captain and star striker for the start of the tournament, which kicks off on Sunday.

The international squad linked up in Dubai before flying to Cameroon for the AFCON tournament.

Videos posted online revealed Aubameyang, 32, on a night out with Mario Lemina, 28, who has now tested positive for coronavirus himself.

The pair will now definitely miss Gabon’s opening two group matches against Comoros, on January 10, and Ghana four days later.

Aubameyang had on Wednesday shared a selfie of himself travelling on the plane heading to Cameroon.

But according to Sport News Africa, the Arsenal forward and Lemina tested positive for Covid after arriving in Cameroon.


It adds to more woes for Aubameyang, who two weeks into December was STRIPPED of Gunners captaincy.

He was then dropped by Mikel Arteta for Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Southampton after arriving back late from an authorised trip to France.

The former Borussia Dortmund man has not returned since.

But was given permission to leave the Gunners camp to join Gabon early – only to then test positive for Covid after being out with the public in the Middle East.

It is widely reported that Arsenal are now open to selling Aubameyang in January, to raise funds for a new striker.
