Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is recovering well after testing positive for coronavirus, according to his wife.

The Gunners manager was confirmed to have contracted the virus on Thursday evening, and all Premier League matches have subsequently been suspended until April 3.

However, Arteta's wife Lorena Bernal has reassured supporters that her husband is on the road to recovery.

"Under the circumstances that we are right now, I felt the responsibility of sharing our situation," Bernal said on Instagram.

"I want to say thank you to everyone who sent good vibes, texts, emails and calls, really it's been overwhelming. I understand as well that you want to know what's going on.

"My husband is feeling fine, he is well.

"It's true that he had symptoms of the virus but the symptoms would have never stopped him from going to work in a normal situation. He would have just taken an ibuprofen or paracetamol and he would have gone to work so really, it's nothing major. Some temperatures, some headaches but that's it.

"That's his experience. My kids and I are perfectly well."

The Premier League are scheduled to hold an emergency meeting next Thursday to discuss how to move forward with the remainder of the season.
