Before I started feeling the symptoms on Saturday I was on the phone to my wife Bianca’s mother and I said to her that I hoped if anyone in our family got it that it would be me. I felt like I was fit and healthy and I could handle it. A week later and I would say to anyone, even those in their 20s and 30s - ‘Don’t take it lightly - it’s serious’. I get that people who haven’t got it are going about their lives. Last week, I was living my life. Not that I didn’t take coronavirus seriously.

I felt terrible for a few days but I never tested for the virus and feel fine now. It was sensible advice to self-isolate from the rest of the lads and from my family during this period. I’ve now made a full recovery

It almost took someone high up to get it for the game to think, ‘Oh actually, we need to stop’. If Mikel Arteta hadn’t tested positive, we would have played those fixtures [last weekend]. I would rather we looked back in three or four months’ time and thought we were over-cautious than look back thinking that we could have done more
