Anthony Joshua is in self isolation after coming into contact with Prince Charles, who recently tested positive for coronavirus. The British heavyweight champion attended a Commonwealth Day service earlier this month where he met with Prince Charles, as well as The Queen.
Earlier today, news broke the Prince of Wales had become the most high-profile member of the British establishment to contract COVID-19.
A spokesperson from Clarence House had announced Prince Charles showed mild symptoms “but otherwise remains in good health”.
Joshua, who is scheduled to defend his IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles against Kubrat Pulev on June 20, recently came into contact with the heir to the throne.
And while the 30-year-old hasn’t showed any symptoms, he is taking precautionary measures to self-isolate.
“AJ is at home following government guidelines, he is fit and well,” a spokesman said.
“He wishes everyone affected a speedy recovery and a huge thank you to all the front line key workers.”
Sporting events across the globe are being cancelled and postponed heading into the summer.
The European Championships and Olympics have already been postponed until 2021, raising further doubt on Joshua’s clash with Pulev at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
