Former Scotland cricket captain Majid Haq announced on Twitter he has tested positive for coronavirus.

The 37-year-old off-spinner from Paisley is being treated at the Royal Alexandria Hospital.

He said he was "looking forward to potentially getting back home" and thanked the hospital staff for their help, with him believing he contracted the virus on a London tube train.

He tweeted: "Insha Allah the panther will be back to full health soon."
