N'Golo Kante has been allowed to stay away from Chelsea's return to training due to his coronavirus fears.
The French World Cup winner joined Frank Lampard's squad on Tuesday as training resumed following a decision to allow socially distanced sessions.
But the 29-year-old missed Wednesday's small group practice with the blessing of the Chelsea manager, who is reported to have allowed him to train at home on compassionate leave.
Kante, who tested negative for the virus this week, is said to be unconvinced it is safe to train with his teammates.
The former Leicester star experienced a health scare when he collapsed at Chelsea's training ground two years ago. Tests at the time did not reveal any heart concern.
