“My initial response to the news that I had contracted Coronavirus, was complete shock. It’s not something you expect especially being a young and healthy athlete. We tend to think these things happen to other people other than ourselves, but I learned very quickly that this isn’t necessarily the case. The coronavirus does not discriminate, it doesn’t care who you are,” added the 29-year old.

"This is a reality that we all must come to terms with. Having experienced what I have gone through this past month, I would like to encourage people to take heed of the messages of social distancing; the washing of hands and also those wearing a mask when in public. The only way we can beat this thing is to adhere to these safety measures and not underestimate this pandemic,” he concluded.
