Retired tennis player Patrick McEnroe has recovered from a mild case of coronavirus, he announced on social media on Tuesday.

The 53-year-old younger brother of seven-time Grand Slam singles champion John McEnroe said in a video posting on Twitter that he was tested at a drive-up facility in Westchester County, the NY suburb where a major outbreak took place.

"The good news is I feel fine". "I feel 100 percent".

McEnroe, younger brother of eight-time major champion John, said he did a drive-through test in upstate NY after developing what he called "minor symptoms" about 10 days ago.

"My wife has been incredible organizing the kids, bringing me food, leaving it to my little spot here, taking the gloves, doing all the things that we were told to do". "We've been on full quarantine, our entire house now, for well over two weeks", he said. Let's nail this thing.

"I'm an example of someone that's been able to fight through it and I'm doing absolutely fine", said McEnroe, the youngest brother of Hall of Famer John McEnroe. "And, again, I just want to give a shoutout to people that have lost loved ones or people that are really struggling". We gotta do our part. Let's all do what we have been told to do which is to stay home, stay safe.

McEnroe thanked well wishers later, tweeting, "So So touched by ALL the messages of support".
