Earlier in the month of March, Chelsea fans were hit with terrible news when it was reported that Blues winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has tested positive for COVID-19.

Hudson-Odoi has now recovered from the virus and has spoken at length in a FaceTime interview with Chelsea TV about how he felt at the time and his current state.

Asked how he is now, Hudson-Odoi responded: “I am feeling perfect.

“I had the virus which has cleared now. I fully feel good, I feel fit, so I am feeling back to myself so it is all good.

“I had it [the illness] three weeks ago now I think, on a Monday when I felt a bit hot and I was thinking this is a bit unusual, why do I feel this hot. The next day I was feeling back to normal. I thought it was just a minor temperature thing, but obviously it wasn’t. I said to myself this wasn’t actually that bad, the symptoms, and I said to myself I feel good, I feel better.”

Hudson-Odoi then urged everyone to remain careful and stay safe until the virus passes away.

He said: “Everything is happening so fast and I did not know this virus would be such a major thing and so big in the world and affect so many people,’ he says about what has happened since his diagnosis.

“Everyone has to be careful and judge things how they go and hopefully the virus will go soon and everyone will be back to normal.

“I want the football to come back as soon as possible, I’d want it to come back today if it could but this thing [pandemic] is growing and it is going to keep growing so the thing is we want everyone to stay safe and stay well. We want to be out there playing football and we want to enjoy what we are doing and we want the fans to be enjoying everything with us.”
