Roberts had his stint with the Stormers cut short earlier this year when the Super Rugby season was suspended due to the global pandemic.

The 33-year-old is also a medical doctor and helped fight the disease on the frontline when he returned to Wales.

He recently signed a deal with Welsh outfit the Dragons, but his debut will be delayed after testing positive Covid-19 this week.

He will conduct a period of self-isolation, while the Dragons have stated that follow-up tests showed there were no other positive results from their squad.

Roberts posted on Twitter that he was "feeling fine" but was not happy that his Covid-19 results were leaked by a UK publication.
