Wales international and ex-Stormers centre Jamie Roberts has posted a social media message to state that he is feeling well after testing positive for coronavirus.
Roberts had his stint with the Stormers cut short earlier this year when the Vodacom Super Rugby season was suspended due to the pandemic.
Recently, Roberts signed for the Dragons, who are due to face the Ospreys on Sunday.
The 33-year-old returned a positive test for Covid-19 this week, but is in good health as he conducts a period of self-isolation, while the Dragons have stated that follow-up tests showed there were no other positive results from the squad.
– Appreciate messages re. Covid. I’m feeling fine. Lot of DIY at home 🙌🏼
– Delighted no other positive tests and Welsh derby matches get 👍🏼
