(Reuters) – Australian golfer Greg Norman has been hospitalized in the United States and is showing symptoms of COVID-19.

Norman, whose two main titles came in at the British Open in 1986 and 1993, had previously tested negative for the novel coronavirus, but posted a picture of him on social media on Friday wearing a mask and lying on a hospital bed, beating before, he had tested positive.

A day earlier he had said he had mild symptoms that were “possibly COVID”.

“I feel very flu-like, I have a slight fever, I have a cough, I have pain, I have a slight headache, so I’m in self-quarantine,” the 65-year-old said on Thursday.

His son, also known as Greg, confirmed on his social media account that he and his wife had tested positive for COVID-19 and were in isolation at home.

Norman and his son had played together at the PNC Championship in Orlando, Florida last week.
