(Reuters) - Australian golfing great Greg Norman has been hospitalised in the United States showing COVID-19 symptoms.

 

Norman, whose two major titles came at the British Open in 1986 and 1993, had earlier tested negative for the novel coronavirus but on Friday he posted a picture on social media of him wearing a mask and lying on a hospital bed, using an expletive to suggest he had tested positive.

 

A day earlier he had said he was experiencing mild symptoms that were "potentially COVID".

 

"I feel very flu-like, I have a mild fever, I have cough, I have aches and pains, I have a mild headache, so I am in self quarantine," the 65-year-old had said on Thursday.

 

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

 

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

The 65-year-old said he had tested negative for the novel coronavirus after playing in the exhibition PNC Championship in Orlando but began to experience fever, joint and muscle aches later in the week before being admitted to hospital.

 

"I'm home now after admitting myself to the ER ... with symptoms very suspicious to what I have read about relating to COVID...," Norman said in an Instagram post on Saturday.

 

"I tested negative under the PGA Tour bubble for the tournament and another negative last Tuesday.

 

"On Wednesday, day four of incubation after being exposed, symptoms raised their ugly head - fever joint and muscle aches, especially in my back, and headaches.

 

"I still have most but on a lesser level."

 

Norman, whose two major titles came at the British Open in 1986 and 1993, said he expected to have results from another COVID-19 test in the next 24 hours and that he would continue to isolate until he returned two negative tests.

 

Norman's son, also named Greg, had played with his father at the PNC Championship before confirming on social media that he and his wife had tested positive for the virus.

Great news. Surprised he was ever even admitted into hospital. Seems very precautious and a bit of an overreaction, but regardless...glad Greg is doing well, as is the case with the vast majority of those infected. :thumbsup:
