The legendary athlete said that he is not suffering from any symptoms, however, he is staying in for a few days as a responsible citizen.
Good morning everybody, just waking up. Like everybody, I’ve checked social media, social media’s saying I’m confirmed [as having coronavirus]. I did a test on Saturday because I have work [abroad]. I’m trying to be responsible so I’m going to stay in for me and my friends. Also, I have no symptoms. I’m going to quarantine myself and wait to see what the protocol is. Until then, I’m quarantined by myself and just taking it easy. Be safe out there.
Stay Safe my ppl 🙏🏿 pic.twitter.com/ebwJFF5Ka9
