Jamaican sprint legend and World’s Fastest Man, Usain Bolt, has tested positive for coronavirus and is in self-isolation at his Jamaican home.
The eight-time Olympic Gold medalist revealed this through a video he posted on Twitter.
The report is coming days after celebrating his 34th birthday and throwing a party attended by celebrities including Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling.
Jamaican health minister, Dr Christopher Tufton , confirmed the report and had informed the sprint-star of the result, Jamaican observer reports.
Sterling, however, tested negative for the virus and this has dowsed fears of him being infected with the dreaded virus.
Bolt, in the video message, told fans and supporters of his health status and advised those that came for his birthday party to stay safe and get tested too.
“Just waking up, and like everybody else, I checked social media which is saying I am confirmed to have COVID-19.
“I am trying to be responsible so I am going to stay in and stay here for my friends.”
“I am going to quarantine myself and wait on the confirmation to see what is the protocol and how I should go about quarantining myself.”
