Hollywood actor Antonio Banderas has tested positive for Covid-19. The actor shared the health update on Twitter on Monday, on the occasion of his 60th birthday.

"I would like to add that I feel relatively good, just a little more tired than usual, and am confident that I will recover as soon as possible following medical instructions that I hope will allow me to overcome the infectious period that I am suffering, and that is affecting so many people around the planet," he added.

"I will take advantage of this isolation to read, write, rest and continue making plans to begin to give meaning to my 60 years, to which I arrive full of enthusiasm. A big hug to everyone," Banderas concluded.
