Idris Elba has confirmed he has tested positive for coronavirus.

The actor says he feels fine and currently has no symptoms, but has been isolated since he found out that he may have been exposed to the virus.

In a tweet he said: “This morning I tested positive for COVID-19. I feel ok, I have no symptoms so far but have been isolated since I found out about my possible exposure to the virus.

“Stay home people and be pragmatic. I will keep you updated on how I’m doing. No panic.”
