Indian wrestler and Khel Ratna awardee Vinesh Phogat has announced that she has recovered from covid. The Tokyo Olympics-bound wrestler was tested positive last week. She took to Twitter to confirm that she has now recovered but will remain in isolation. “I underwent a second COVID-19 test yesterday and am happy to report that I have received a negative result. While this is great news, I will be remaining in isolation as a precautionary measure. A big thank you to everyone for your prayers”.
