Nottingham Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis has revealed he has fully recovered after testing positive for coronavirus.

The 52 year-old spent two weeks in self-isolation before taking a second test which came back negative.

And Marinakis then took to the Nottingham Forest website to tell fans that he was safe and healthy, while also reminding people to stay at home and not be 'selfish'.

He said: "After two weeks in full compliance with my doctors’ instructions, I underwent my second medical test, as suggested by the relevant protocol, which turned out negative. I stayed at home, I communicated with many of my friends and relatives, I read a lot, I watched TV for many hours, I listened to music and spent numerous hours surfing on the web; all these helped me realise what is going on in the rest of the world and see once again how fragile our planet is.

"By staying at home, we shield ourselves and deny the virus intruding in our lives. By staying at home, we defend our community, the many, public health and contain the virus spread. So there is no room for being careless or selfish."
