“You can’t imagine how happy I am after watching this video. I missed you so much, Lewis. I’m so glad you are feeling better. It’s amazing to see you smiling. Sending you lots of love.”
These are two of thousands of messages sent by concerned fans and well wishers to Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton, after he informed his fans on Twitter that he was feeling great after testing positive for Covid-19 last week.
“I just wanted to send you guys a message of positivity to let you know that I am OK, and thank every single one of you for sending me the amazing messages and videos. I really, really appreciate it,” he said in a video which has had more than 1 million views in less than 24 hours.
Hamilton said he looked forward to Sunday's race in Abu Dhabi.
He will be required to produce a negative Covid-19 test to compete in the race.
Fans thanked him for the update and wished him well on his recovery.
