Antonin Panenka tested coronavirus positive and is in intensive care unit

Antonin Panenka is in intensive care and has a coronavirus.

Panenka is the scorer of the famous chipped penalty that was eventually named after him.

The Czech football hero is in intensive care after being tested positive for coronavirus, confirmed by his former club Bohemians 1905.

Bohemians said in a statement: “The honorary president of Bohemians 1905, the legend of the Kangaroos and all Czechoslovak and Czech football Antonin Panenka was taken to hospital in the intensive care unit. The scorer of the legendary penalty is on machines that support his vital functions.”

The 71-year-old, famous for his chipped penalty against Germany, who won the 1976 European Championship in Czechoslovakia, was admitted to hospital on Wednesday.

It was an iconic moment and in the years after, the action of dinking the ball from the spot was later named after Panenka, with several players repeating the trick across the globe.
