Liverpool icon Sir Dalglish tests positive for coronavirus


Liverpool legend Sir Kenny Dalglish has tested positive for coronavirus.


The 69-year-old took the test after being admitted to hospital for treatment of an infection. He is currently displaying no symptons, according to a statement released by his family.

It read: “Sir Kenny was admitted to hospital on Wednesday April 8 for treatment of an infection which required intravenous antibiotics. “In keeping with current procedures, he was subsequently tested for COVID-19 despite having previously displayed no symptoms of the illness.

Unexpectedly, the test result was positive but he remains asymptomatic.

“Prior to his admission to hospital, Sir Kenny had chosen to voluntarily self-isolate for longer than the advised period together with his family. He would urge everyone to follow the relevant government and expert guidance in the days and weeks ahead.

“He would like to take this opportunity to thank the brilliant NHS staff, whose dedication, bravery and sacrifice should be the focus of the nation’s attention at this extraordinary time.
