World boxing champion, Anthony Joshua, has gone into self-isolation after meeting Prince Charles who tested positive for coronavirus on Wednesday.
Prince Charles, heir to Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, is self-isolating in Scotland. His wife tested negative.
It was unclear, according to AFP, when Charles caught the illness.
However, on March 9, he spent the day with the Queen, Prime Minister Boris Johnson and stars of sport and entertainment – including Joshua – at the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey.
A spokesman for Joshua told the Daily Mail that the Nigerian is at home following government guidelines, “he is fit and well. He wishes everyone affected a speedy recovery and a huge thank you to all the front line key workers.”
Joshua is due to defend his IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles against mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on June 20.
The bout could be delayed by the coronavirus pandemic ravaging the world.
Joshua, tweeting on Tuesday, thanked all those involved in trying to combat the coronavirus.
“It’s humbling to see people giving their everything right now to keep us safe. Shout to everyone on the front-line,” he said.
“We see you, we appreciate you, we thank you and we’re in awe of you!”
