WWE legend Mick Foley has revealed he tested positive for Covid-19.
The Hall of Famer – who has been very vocal about following regulations on social media – has been self isolating ‘for the past 18 days’ and missed celebrating both Christmas and New Year with his family.
He wrote on Twitter: ‘I tested positive for COVID following a December virtual signing, and have been isolating in a hotel room for the past 18 days.
‘Please continue to take this virus seriously – mask up, social distance, look out for one another. Wishing all of you a happy, healthy new year.’
In a video alongside his tweet, the former world champion admitted while he did his ‘best’ to stay safe, he ‘could have done better’.
‘I want people to take this very seriously. I know that some will get kind of a kick out of me contracting the virus after being so adamant about wearing masks and social distancing,’ he added.
‘I did, I did my best, I — you know, I could have done better. I could have done no appearances, but I did cut back dramatically.
‘I did four virtual signings, two reality shows, two personal appearances, a commercial, and one WWE event for The Undertaker’s retirement in – it’s almost eleven months.
‘So I cut back dramatically, I had 12 COVID tests done and tried to take it as seriously as I could. But it‘s bad stuff, and I hope all of you will take it very seriously.’
Foley pointed to a bright future after ‘some tough days ahead’ and urged his followers to still take precautions to battle the coronavirus.
‘There’s a vaccine and better days on the horizon, but there’s still some tough days ahead,’ he acknowledged.
‘Please, continue to wear your masks, social distance, avoid travel if you can. And hopefully, we’ll look back on 2021 as a much better year than 2020.
‘Wishing all of you the very best and hoping all of your days will be nice.’
