Usain Bolt is in quarantine after taking a Covid-19 test just days after his 34th birthday party, which was reportedly attended by Raheem Sterling and several other sporting stars.
After reports surfaced in Jamaica, the world 100m and 200m record holder issued a statement in which he urged anyone who has come into contact with him to self-isolate.
“I’m just waking up, and like everybody else I checked social media which is saying I am confirmed to have Covid-19,” said Bolt. “I did a test on Saturday because of work. I am trying to be responsible so I am going to stay in and stay here for my friends. Also I’m having no symptoms so I am going to quarantine myself and wait on the confirmation to see what is the protocol and how I should go about quarantine myself.
“Until then, ta-ta to my friends and I am saying anyone who has had contact with me should quarantine by themselves just to be safe and just to take it easy,” he said.
