England batting coach Marcus Trescothick is in isolation, less than two days before the third Test against New Zealand, after catching Covid-19.

The 46-year-old was appointed to work with England's male batters across all formats in March.

Trescothick scored 14 Test centuries and 12 in one-day internationals during a playing career hampered by anxiety.

England captain Ben Stokes missed Tuesday's training session at Headingley through illness.

England have sealed their series win over New Zealand with victories in the first and second Tests.

The third Test begins at Headingley on Thursday.
