Sport in brief: Wolves forward Leonardo Campana over the worst after his family suffers coronavirus

FOOTBALL: Wolves forward Leonardo Campana has revealed he and his entire family have all recovered from coronavirus. The 19-year-old Ecuador international (pictured), who is recovering at his Wolverhampton home, said: ‘I was diagnosed two or three weeks ago. Thank God, I’m feeling fine today. I guess all my family got the virus since we were all together in my house. First one to get sick was my brother, then my mum, and then me. My dad and my sisters were also with us. The club doctor told us to keep calm and to stay at home for two weeks.’
