Piers Morgan has shared he recently tested positive for COVID-19.

The British broadcaster says he thinks he caught the Delta variant at London's Wembley Stadium during the Euros final earlier this month.

"My confidence that the event would be 'COVID-safe,' had disintegrated. It was turning into an unregulated free-for-all," he wrote.

He said he began to feel ill two days after the match took a lateral flow test, which was positive. A follow-up PCR test then also returned a positive result. 

Morgan says that his symptoms included fever, cold sweats, coughing, and "alarming" chest pains. He says the symptoms have not gone.

"This is definitely the roughest I've felt from any illness in my adult life, BUT, as I slowly come out the other side, coughing and spluttering, I'm still here — unlike so many millions around the world who've lost their lives to COVID in this pandemic," he continued.

He says he has been vaccinated.

"For that, I owe a heartfelt debt of thanks to the brilliant scientists up in Oxford who created the Astra-Zeneca vaccine with such astonishing speed," he said.
