The Capital FM DJ was due to take part in the big charity football match at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
He tweeted on Friday afternoon: “I’m absolutely gutted. I’ve had a positive test come through so I won’t be playing at @SoccerAid tomorrow night.
“I’ll be cheering from a sofa and hope that everyone donates as much as they can for the cause.”
He added: “Come on Soccer Aid World XI FC!”
A source told the Sun: “It is worrying for everyone involved in Soccer Aid however as Roman was training with a lot of the players yesterday and has been in close contact with so many people.
