MUSCAT: Sprint legend Usain Bolt was in quarantine on Monday as he tested positive for the coronavirus.
Jamaican media quoted health and wellness minister Christopher Tufton confirmed late on Monday that the eight-time Olympic champion had tested positive.
Bolt, however, did not confirm the result but urged everyone who has been in contact with him to go into quarantine.
“I did a test on Saturday to leave (Jamaica) because I have work,” Bolt said in a video posted on Twitter. “I am trying to be responsible so I am going to stay in and be safe,” Bold added.
