BREAKING: Anthony Joshua in self-isolation after meeting Prince Charles

World heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua , has placed himself in self – isolation following a meeting with Prince Charles , who tested positive for coronavirus on Wednesday .

Charles , the eldest son, and heir to Britain ’ s Queen Elizabeth II , is showing mild symptoms of coronavirus and is self – isolating in Scotland , officials said on Wednesday .

It remains unclear when Charles caught the illness but on March 9 , he spent the day with the Queen , prime minister Boris Johnson and stars of sport and entertainment – including Joshua – at the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey .

A spokesman for Joshua told the Daily Mail , “ AJ is at home following government guidelines , he is fit and well. He wishes everyone affected a speedy recovery and a huge thank you to all the front line key workers . ”

Joshua is due to defend his IBF , WBA and WBO heavyweight titles against mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on June 20 .

But the coronavirus could delay that bout and push back a hugely anticipated all- British fight with WBC champion Tyson Fury until next year at the earliest .

In a series of Twitter posts on Tuesday , Joshua thanked all those involved in trying to combat the coronavirus by saying : “ It’ s humbling to see people giving their everything right now to keep us safe . Shout to everyone on the front – line .

“ We see you, we appreciate you , we thank you and we ’ re in awe of you!”
