Ex-WWE man Miroslav 'Rusev' Barnyashev confirmed yesterday, via a Twitch livestream, that he has tested positive for coronavirus.
Miro was enjoying a session of Valorant with WWE man Cesaro, when he made the startling announcement in response to the Swiss' question about visiting a gym.
The news comes shortly after it was revealed that both parents of WWE's Lana, Miro's wife, had tested positive for the virus.
The Bulgarian told his watching audience, "I'm absolutely positive for COVID-19. I'm absolutely, one-hundred percent super, mega, incredibly positive. Yes, I got a phone call from the doctor."
Miro's agent later confirmed the 35-year-old's diagnosis.
Lana's mother, an asthma sufferer, was recently admitted to an ICU with the illness. Her daughter posted an update saying that thankfully, she is recovering.
"My mother is doing much better. They have had her off the oxygen in the hospital for over 24 hours. Now that's incredible. Thank you guys for all of your prayers and positive thoughts."
She went on to say that her mum was now in a hotel, and that she may be released shortly. Lana also stated that her father is "doing better", after previously being bedridden for an entire week. "Yesterday was the first day he started to feel better," she posted.

Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, old-school adventure games (they're not dead), and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know).
He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
