Tokyo Olympics Gold medalist Neeraj Chopra is suffering from high fever from the past two days. He even didn’t attend the felicitation function organised by the Haryana government on Friday. Following doctor’s advise, his Covid-19 test was done. The report came negative.
Speaking to DLP, a person close to Neeraj said the athlete is recovering now. “His temperature was 103 till yesterday. But he is getting better now. His report (of Covid) also came negative. Doctor has advised him rest. He had a hectic schedule and that is the reason he fell ill,” the person said.
“Neeraj might attend the function at Rashtrapati Bhawan this evening. He will come directly there. Rest (all players) are currently at Ashoka hotel,” he added.
