Piers Morgan has provided an update on his Long Covid battle as he has been suffering from symptoms eight months after.

The former Good Morning Britain presenter previously said he caught coronavirus after attending the Euro 2020 final between Italy and England at Wembley Stadium.

Piers started feeling symptoms two days after the final, which included a fever and body aches.

And now, almost a year later, the TV star took to his Twitter to share an update on his remaining symptoms.

He tweeted: “BREAKING: Just finished first Peloton session in 8 (long covid) months. Still got zero sense of smell, but taste returning fast, fatigue waves less frequent, brain fog gone.

“Putting this encouraging update out there for all those suffering LC issues. ps No [clown emoji] loons need respond.”

Fans of the star took to the comment section to wish him well and share their experiences.

“That’s great to hear! I am still dealing with muscle spasms from my case in January. Fortunately, they aren’t causing cramps anymore. Still annoying, though,” one said.

Another added: “Same issues here Piers, I have also suffered with Pins and Needles in my arms amd legs, has anybody else experienced such symptoms.”

“Sense of smell returned about month 10, not the right smells though. Took about another 6 months to actually smell things properly,” a follower posted.

After getting coronavirus last year, Piers admitted it was the ‘roughest’ he’s felt.

He said: “This is definitely the roughest I’ve felt from any illness in my adult life, BUT, as I slowly come out the other side, coughing and spluttering.”

“I’m still here – unlike so many millions around the world who’ve lost their lives to Covid in this pandemic.

“For that, I owe a heartfelt debt of thanks to the brilliant scientists up in Oxford who created the Astra-Zeneca vaccine with such astonishing speed.”

Piers said he believes he caught the Delta Covid variant a fortnight ago at the final.

“My confidence that the event would be ‘covid safe’ had disintegrated,” Piers said. “It was turning into an unregulated free-for-all.”
Just a few days after the game, he began experience raging fever, chills and violent coughing and sneezing fits.

He also suffered from cold sweats and “strange aches”.
