Sprint legend Usain Bolt said Monday he is self-quarantining after undergoing a Covid-19 test amid reports he was positive for the deadly coronavirus.

In a video posted on Twitter, the Jamaican said he had experienced no symptoms, but he urged friends he had been in contact with to take precautions.

"This weekend, like everybody else, I checked social media and saw social media say that I'm confirmed of Covid-19," Bolt said.

"I did a test Saturday to leave (Jamaica) because I have work," he said, although he did not confirm he had received the result. 

"I am trying to be responsible so I am going to stay in and be safe.

"Also, I am having no symptoms, I will quarantine myself and wait on the confirmation to see what is the protocol and to see how I go about quarantining myself from the Ministry of Health.

"Until then, I will call my friends and tell them once they came in contact with me to be safe, quarantine and take it easy," said Bolt, who turned 34 Friday.

The eight-time Olympic champion, who holds the world 100m and 200m records, last competed internationally at the 2017 World Championship in London.

He and partner Kasi Bennet welcomed the birth of a daughter in May.
