Next Generation star Thiago Seyboth Wild has become the first professional tennis player to reveal that he has contracted the coronavirus.

The 20-year-old Brazilian, who won his maiden ATP Tour title at the Chile Open at the start of March, made the revelation via social media.

“Hey guys. I just wanted to let you know that I’ve contracted the COVID-19 but I’ve self-isolated myself for the past week. And I’ve been taking care of myself and following the doctor’s instructions.

“This is just a reminder for you all to stay at home, take care of the people you love and help us all to not spread this disease.

“Stay home and stay safe.”
