Los Angeles Galaxy forward Landon Donovan has tested positive for the H1N1 flu virus, commonly known as swine flu.

Donovan told Sports Illustrated he had been feeling ill since the United States squad met for training camp in Florida on Sunday.

He said: "I felt something when I got into Miami on Sunday.

"I just felt real bad and finally went to see the doctor. They took a swab from my nose and confirmed it, so that was that."

The all-time leader in goals and assists for the USA is believed to have contracted the virus from two Galaxy staff members who came down with it during last weekend's Galaxy game against the New England Revolution in Foxborough, Mass., said Bruce Arena, Galaxy coach and general manager.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, there have been more than 40,000 laboratory-confirmed cases of the virus in the USA and experts believe that more than 1 million Americans have been infected.
