Valentino rossi confirmed this Friday that he has COVID-19 and motorsport fans received the news with great surprise. The Italian will miss at least the first race to be held this Sunday in Aragon and will have to await his evolution to see if he can return next weekend. In the last hour, Rossi commented on how the symptoms were and how he is currently feeling.
Rossi had made the decision not to travel to Aragon despite the fact that his first swabs were negative. Given the insistence of the symptoms, the Italian decided to isolate himself and have a more exhaustive control. Finally, the result of the latter was positive, so ‘Vale’ must wait. In addition, he had given details of how he received the news with many jokes.
Valentino said it was a good decision to have stayed at home and not make a trip to Spain with symptoms. “If I had to stay 10 days in Aragon, I would have jumped off the balcony,” the multi-champion had laughed. However, these statements did not go down very well around the circuit of MotorLand.
Despite the fact that the Italian launched those words in a joking tone and between laughter, the president of the community of Aragon launched tremendous words towards Valentino rossi. «Come back when you want but, please, heal before. But, heal completely, that COVID is not your main health problem! “, Bombarded Javier Lambán, president of Aragon on his Twitter account.
Although his results were negative in the beginning, Valentino rossi made the decision not to travel to the Aragon circuit due to the appearance of symptoms. ‘Il Dottore’ said he had: ‘Back pain, bone aches, headache. I looked at my fever and it was at 37.6 ». Despite this, the Italian is already much better and hopes to be able to return as quickly as possible.
