Former Good Morning Britain star Piers Morgan contracted coronavirus after attending the Euro 2020 final between Italy and England at Wembley Stadium
Piers Morgan provided an update on his Long Covid battle as he developed symptoms eight months later.
The Good Morning Britain presenter previously said he contracted coronavirus after attending the Euro 2020 final between Italy and England at Wembley Stadium.
Piers started feeling symptoms two days after the finale, including fever and body aches.
And now, almost a year later, the TV star has taken to his Twitter to share an update on his remaining symptoms.
He tweeted: “BREAKING: Just finished first Peloton session in 8 months (long covid). Still no sense of smell, but taste returns fast, less frequent episodes of fatigue, brain fog disappear.

“Giving this encouraging update to everyone who is facing LC issues. Ps No [clown emoji] loons need feedback. “
The star’s fans took to the comments section to wish him well and share his experiences.
One said: “Great to know!
Another added: “Similar issues here Piers, I’ve also had Pins and Needles on my hands and feet, anyone else experiencing such symptoms.”
“The sense of smell comes back around 10 months, though, not the right smells. It takes about 6 more months to really smell things properly,” one follower posted.
After contracting coronavirus last year, Piers admits it was the ‘toughest’ thing he’s felt.
He said: “This is definitely the hardest thing I’ve felt from any illness in my adult life, BUT, as I slowly came out the other side, coughing and splashing.”

“I’m still here – unlike the millions of people around the world who have lost their lives to Covid during this pandemic.
“For that, I am indebted to the brilliant scientists at Oxford, who created the Astra-Zeneca vaccine with such incredible speed.”
Piers said he believes he caught the Delta Covid variant two weeks ago at the final.
Piers said: “My belief that the event would take place ‘absolutely’ has disintegrated. “It is turning into an unregulated free place for all.”
Just a few days after the game, he began to develop a severe fever, chills, and violent coughing and sneezing episodes.
He also suffered from cold sweats and “strange aches and pains”.
