Last week, Chelsea's world was flipped upside down when it was revealed 19-year-old winger Callum Hudson-Odoi had tested positive for the coronavirus.
Immediately football fans across the globe reached out to send positive thoughts his way. Well, it appears the youngster is doing fantastic in his recovery. This week, he posted a video to his social media of him working out on a stationary bike, getting in a good sweat.

This is amazing to see. In accordance with government guidelines, Hudson-Odoi remains in self-isolation, but is still working his way back to health. In a press conference, manager Frank Lampard gave a positive update on his player as well.
“I’m happy to say that, in Callum’s case, he has made great progress and almost feels his usual self, which is obviously the news we all want to hear,” Lampard said.
“I am of course aware that not everyone can or will recover from this virus, so I urge all of the football and sporting community to continue to act responsibly and look out for the health of others."
Though Hudson-Odoi still has more work to do to get back to 100%, the early signs have been nothing short of encouraging. Blues fans will continue to be in his corner throughout this process.
Thank you for all your good wishes, as I said in the video I’m feeling good and hope to see you all soon!!🙏🏾❤️ pic.twitter.com/hn5d0ikm60— Callum Hudson-Odoi (@Calteck10) March 13, 2020
