Australian rules football legend Ron Barassi has tested positive for COVID-19, ruling him out of taking part in Melbourne's long-awaited AFL premiership celebrations at the MCG.

The 85-year-old is understood to have contracted coronavirus at a 70th birthday party for former VFL player and media identity Peter 'Crackers' Keenan last month.

A spokesperson for Barassi told The Age he and his wife were both double vaccinated and they did not need to go to hospital.
