Leo Messi took to his Instagram account to send the following message to all of his followers after he tested positive for COVID-19: “Good afternoon! As you know, I’ve had COVID and wanted to thank you for all of the messages I’ve received and let you know that although it took me longer than I expected to feel fine again, I’ve nearly recovered and I can’t wait to get back out on the pitch. I’ve been training over the last few days to make sure I’m at 100%. We have some special challenges ahead of us this year and I hope that we can see each other again very soon. Thanks!
“I CAN’T WAIT TO GET BACK OUT ON THE PITCH”
