Piers Morgan reveals he tested positive for COVID-19 after watching Euros final at Wembley

Piers Morgan has shared he recently tested positive for Covid-19 and believes he caught it at Wembley during the Euros 2020 final. 

The 56-year-old journalist, who has received both doses of the Astra-Zeneca vaccine, had a ticket to the England v Italy game that saw a number of fans break into the stadium to watch the match.

"My confidence that the event would be 'covid safe' had disintegrated," Morgan shares in tomorrow's Mail On Sunday. "It was turning into an unregulated free-for-all."

The former Good Morning Britain host said he began to feel ill two days after England's defeat and took a lateral flow test which was positive. A follow-up PCR test then also returned a positive result. 

He writes his symptoms included fever, cold sweats, coughing, and "alarming" chest pains, although they have now faded.

"This is definitely the roughest I've felt from any illness in my adult life, BUT, as I slowly come out the other side, coughing and spluttering, I'm still here – unlike so many millions around the world who've lost their lives to Covid in this pandemic," he adds.

Morgan goes on to thank the "brilliant" scientists in Oxford who created the Astra-Zeneca vaccine.
