He continues, “I would like to add that I feel relatively well, just a little more tired than usual. [I am] confident that I will recover as soon as possible following the medical indications that I hope will allow me to overcome the infectious process that I suffer 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 60th year to which I arrive full of enthusiasm. A big hug to everyone.” Antonio did not confirm where he is living. He reportedly has homes in England, Spain, and New York.
For instance, Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, Mel Gibson, Pink, and Idris Elba have all confirmed that they had coronavirus. We wish Antonio a happy birthday and hope he recovers soon!
