Shandong Luneng midfielder Fellaini: I'm getting stronger every day

Former Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini says he's getting better after being diagnosed with coronavirus.

The 32-year-old posted a video from a hospital in China, where he claimed that he is getting back to normal fitness, having been one of the first elite footballers to contract the virus.

The Belgian joined Chinese side Shandong Luneng during the January transfer window last year, but it is there where the killer bug first emerged from.

He captioned the video with: "Thank you everyone for all your messages. I am still in hospital but getting stronger every day."
