Olympic gold medalist, Usain Bolt reveals he has coronavirus

Superstar Jamaican sprinter, Usain Bolt, has announced he tested positive for coronavirus, after his birthday last weekend.

Apparently, the Olympics gold-medalist, partied with friends, as he turned 34 last Friday, and is believed to have gotten the virus from one of the guests.

Bolt announced the news in a video to fans via social media, adding he's asymptomatic, but quarantined at the moment. He said in the video,

“Good morning everybody. I’m just waking up and like everybody just checking social media and social media is saying I am confirmed to have Covid-19.

“I did a test on Saturday to leave because I have work. I’m trying to be responsible so I’m going to stay in and stay here for my friends.

“Also, I have no symptoms so I’m going to quarantine myself and wait on the confirmation to see what is the protocol.

“Until then… just to be safe I’m quarantined by myself, just to take it easy and just to let people know, be safe out there”.
