 Shocked EPL Players Awaiting HIV Test Results

Six English Premier League players are allegedly awaiting results of HIV tests after it was reported that a girl whom they had bedded was infected with the virus.

According to reports, the players were shocked to know about the virus and were suggested to take HIV tests in order to confirm whether they have contracted it.

"All of them are beside themselves with worry. They are all only too aware of the scandal it will cause. None of them have let their families know yet because they don't want to worry them," The Sun quoted a source, as saying.

The players, believed to be from three different clubs, were not named due to legal reasons and to avoid public humiliation.

"It's like a ticking timebomb for them all and would almost certainly end their careers if they have contracted it," the source added.

Apparently, the girl has no idea whether she contracted the virus before or after sleeping with all of them.

The infected girl had met them through her boyfriend and it is believed that after splitting up with him, she slept with the players over several months.

After finding out that she was HIV positive, it is also believed that she informed all her sexual partners about her condition.
