Leicester boss Rodgers reveals he had coronavirus

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed he had coronavirus.

Rodgers said that both he and his wife tested positive after displaying symptoms, but have recovered.

He told BBC Leicester Sport: "Me and my wife had it just after [the season] broke up. A week later I really started to struggle, I had no smell and no taste.

"I had no strength, and I really struggled, and my wife was the same as well. I got tested and we both had it. I could hardly walk.

"It reminded me of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, as you climb higher you get more breathless. Walking 10 yards felt very different. I went for a run, and I just couldn't do it.

"I felt really weak, had no real appetite, and had a weird sensation for three weeks of having no taste."
