Famous England all-rounder Ian Botham said that he had infected by the dreaded coronavirus early this year but mistook it for "a bad case of flu".

The contagious disease has infected over 10 million people worldwide, killing more than 500,000.

"I think the thing to remember is that six months ago no-one even knew what this was, hadn't heard of it," Botham told Good Morning Britain.

"I've actually had it. I had it at the end of December, beginning of January, and I thought I had a bad case of flu. It's amazing how long it has been around, we don't know all the details. It was very much a sort of in the dark, let's see what happens."

Botham has little doubt that the sport will begin soon as cricket is a such a game which social distancing is possible.

"I think cricket will be back very shortly. Cricket can be played. There's no real physical contact there, you can keep your social distancing quite easily," said the 64-year-old.
