Real Madrid forward Trey Thompkins sent his first public message after he tested positive of coronavirus.

Thank you to EVERYONE who has sent love and/or checked up on me. I’m feeling great and just waiting for the virus to pass at this point. Really means a lot, Thompkins tweeted.

Earlier on Thursday, Real Madrid announced that one of its players was found positive of coronavirus, without mentioning the player’s name. It was later reported that the player is Thompkins.

He is the first EuroLeague player tested coronavirus positive. The organization had already suspended all the EuroLeague plus EuroCup games until further notice.

Real Madrid guards Sergio Llull and Facu Campazzo tweeted that they will be following the isolation protocol to protect themselves and others.
