Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta says he is “feeling better already” after testing positive for coronavirus.
The Gunners have closed their training ground, while staff who had recent contact with Arteta are self-isolating.
“Thanks for your words and support,” the Spaniard, 37, wrote on Twitter. “We’re all facing a huge and unprecedented challenge.
“Everyone’s health is all that matters right now. Protect each other by following the guidelines,” he added.
“We’ll come through this together.”
All elite football in Britain has been suspended until at least 3rd April as a result of the pandemic and Arteta added in his tweet: “Well done [the] Premier League for making the right decisions.”
Football’s suspension in Britain comes on a day of widespread sporting postponements worldwide.
