Ex-Man Utd midfielder Fellaini released from hospital in China

Former Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has been released from hospital in China.

Fellaini was discharged from a Chinese hospital on Tuesday after spending three weeks being treated for coronavirus.

The 32-year-old Shandong Luneng midfielder, the only player known to have contracted the disease in the Chinese Super League (CSL), will now spend 14 days in quarantine for further observation.

"Fellaini was assessed and was deemed to have recovered, and was discharged today," Shandong said in a brief statement.

China, where the outbreak emerged in December, says that it has curbed the illness at home but is now worried about a second wave of infections from overseas.
