Arteta’s wife has since taken to Instagram to post another update on the Spaniard.

Lorena Bernal would once again state that her husband is feeling fine whilst also confirming that she and her kids are ‘perfectly well’:

“I want to say thank you to everyone who sent good vibes, texts, emails and calls, really it’s been overwhelming.

“I understand as well that you want to know what’s going on.

“My husband is feeling fine, he is well. It’s true that he had symptoms of the virus but the symptoms would have never stopped him from going to work in a normal situation.

“He would have just taken an ibuprofen or paracetamol and he would have gone to work so really, it’s nothing major.

“Some temperatures, some headaches but that’s it. That’s his experience. My kids and I are perfectly well.

“Apparently the virus is not lethal. It could be for a certain amount of people but the majority are going to go through it with mild symptoms.” As quoted by Sky Sports News.
