Popular British singer Robbie Williams has reportedly tested positive for the COVID-19 disease.
According to the UK Sun, a source close to the musician revealed that the 46-year-old pop star is quarantining in the Caribbean after his test for the virus came positive while he was on holiday with his family.
It was gathered that Williams had flown to St Barts with Ayda Field, his wife, and their four children last December but the COVID-19 diagnosis forced him to self-isolate, extending their stay in their £106,000-a-week villa.
He said: “Robbie’s been fairly sick. He’s confined to the villa where he is staying with his family. It’s not exactly the worst place in the world to be quarantined, although he cannot go to the beach,” the source was quoted as saying.
“He will have to remain in quarantine for up to 14 days.”
Williams found fame as a member of Take That, a pop group, from 1990 to 1995. He achieved greater commercial success with his solo career, beginning in 1996, and has since released seven UK number one singles.
Eleven out of his twelve studio albums have reached number one in the UK while six are among the top-100 biggest-selling albums. Of this, four entered the top 60.
In 2006, Williams entered the Guinness Book of World Records (GWR) for selling 1.6 million tickets of his Close Encounters Tour in a single day.
