Greg Norman’s Christmas was ruined after being struck down by COVID-19.
The Australian golf legend, who lives in America, uploaded an emotional message on Instagram about the virus as well as photos appearing to show him in hospital.
“This sums it all up. My Christmas Day. On behalf of millions, f*** Covid,” Norman wrote.
“Get this s**t behind us never to experience it again.”
Less than a day earlier, Norman posted a video to social media explaining that even though he returned a negative COVID-19 test earlier in the week, he was exhibiting “mild symptoms” of coronavirus.
At that stage he wasn’t sure if it was COVID-19 but admitted he velt “very flu-like”, was coughing, and had a fever and aches and pains.
Norman said he was going into quarantine at home on Christmas eve so as not to pose a risk to family and friends, but was later was updating his followers from hospital.
Australian golf commentator Luke Elvy wrote on Twitter: “Shame for @SharkGregNorman & family struck down with Covid on Xmas Day. Hoping for a speedy recovery Greg.”
