Nationwide90fm, a radio station in Jamaica, reports that the greatest sprinter of all time has contracted the disease and will spend time in self-isolation as a result.
The publication says that the 34-year-old took a test for the virus a few days ago and discovered on Sunday that he had tested positive for the disease.
Bolt was honoured with a surprise birthday party on August 21 which was attended by a host of big names.
Manchester City star Sterling, Bayer Leverkusen attacker Leon Bailey and cricket legend Chris Gayle are believed to have been in attendance.
Sterling’s season finished on August 15 when City were knocked out of the Champions League, and the team have been granted a delayed start to the 2020/21 season because of their European involvement.
Footage from the party showed Bolt laughing and dancing with his guests and even taking the microphone while speakers blared out an Adele song at the outdoor bash.
The guests also danced to the song Lockdown which was produced by Jamaican reggae singer Koffee in reference to the pandemic.
