Antonio Banderas took to social media on Monday to alert his followers that he has tested positive for COVID-19.
"Greetings to all. I want to make public that today, August 10, I am forced to celebrate my 60th birthday following quarantine, having tested positive for the COVID-19 disease, caused by the coronavirus," he wrote in Spanish, accompanied by a black-and-white photo of himself as a child.
Banderas went on to note his symptoms, writing, "I would like to add that I feel relatively well, just a little more tired than usual and 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."
