In a selfie posted last week showing him in hospital wearing an oxygen mask, he revealed he had woken up with breathing difficulties and a cough in Turkey, before testing positive for the virus after returning home to Ukraine. 

"As you all know from stories, I am sick with coronavirus," he captioned the post, according to a translation from The Independent.

"I want to share how I got sick and convincingly warn everyone: I also thought that there was no COVID... until I got sick."
