BREAKING: Usain Bolt tests positive for Coronavirus

Usain Bolt has tested positive for coronavirus just days after partying with guests including England star Raheem Sterling for his 34th birthday in Jamaica, according to reports in the country.

Nationwide90fm, a radio station in Jamaica, reports that the greatest sprinter of all time has contracted the disease and will spend time in self-isolation as a result.

The publication says that the 34-year-old took a test for the virus a few days ago and discovered on Sunday that he had tested positive for the disease.

Bolt attended a surprise birthday party on August 21 which was attended by a host of big names, the Jamaican outlet reports. Manchester City star Sterling, Bayer Leverkusen attacker Leon Bailey and cricket legend Chris Gayle are believed to have been in attendance.

The sprinter hailed it as the 'best birthday ever' in an Instagram post featuring a sweet picture of Bolt and his baby daughter Olympia.

The Caribbean island has had a total of 1,413 cases of coronavirus and 16 deaths from the deadly disease.

On Saturday, prime minister Andrew Holness warned of a recent surge in cases and urged Jamaicans to 'exercise greater vigilance' to prevent the spread.

'There is a need for consciousness… for conscious personal responsibility on the part of every citizen,' he said.

The management for Bolt have been contacted for comment.
