Olympic legend, Usain Bolt, has reportedly contracted Coronavirus and is in self-quarantine after undergoing a test for the virus, days after his 34th birthday celebration.
In a video posted on his social media pages, the Jamaican athlete said he had experienced no symptoms, but he urged friends he had been in contact with to take precautions.
“This weekend, like everybody else, I checked social media and saw social media say that I’m confirmed of COVID-19. I did a test on Saturday to leave (Jamaica) because I have work,” he said, although he did not confirm he had received the result. “I am trying to be responsible so I am going to stay in and be safe.” Bolt said.
He added, “Also, I am having no symptoms, I will quarantine myself and wait on the confirmation to see what is the protocol and to see how I go about quarantining myself from the Ministry of Health. Until then, I will call my friends and tell them once they came in contact with me to be safe, quarantine and take it easy.”
According to Jamaican outlet nationwide radio, Bolt was thrown a surprise birthday party by family and friends, with Manchester City star Raheem Sterling and Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey among the guests.
The eight-time Olympic gold medalist holds the 100m and 200m world records and retired from the track in 2017 after suffering an injury in his final race.
