(CNN) - Three-time Grand Slam tennis champion Andy Murray has tested positive for COVID-19.

The news comes just days before he was due to fly to Melbourne for next month’s Australian Open which is scheduled to begin on February 8.

It’s unclear when the 33-year-old tested positive.

The former World No.1 is currently quarantining and isolating at his home in Surrey, England.

CNN understands that the Scot still hopes to compete in Australia but only when it is completely safe to do so and the appropriate permission is granted.

Murray, a five-time runner-up at the tournament, has been awarded a wildcard by tournament organisers.
