“We are taking it one-day-at-a-time, that’s all we can do. But let me tell you we’ve never felt this ill, EVER!

“I wouldn’t wish this on anyone. So stay safe everyone and follow the advice of the experts – please take care of yourselves, loved ones and each other xx.”

He said: “I didn’t have any symptoms. I got tested because I realised I was exposed to someone who had also tested positive.

“I found out last Friday that they were tested positive and I quarantined myself and I got a test immediately and got the results back today.”

The Thor star continued: “This is serious. Now is the time to think about social distancing, washing your hands.

“Beyond that, there are people out there that aren’t showing symptoms and that can easily spread it.

“So now is a real time to be really vigilant about washing your hands and keeping your distance.”
