The 19-year-old winger was revealed to have tested positive for the virus 10 days ago. Last week, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard relayed a positive update on Hudson-Odoi’s recovery. Now, he’s feeling like his usual self and back to training at home with an eye toward the resumption of soccer, whenever that may be — excerpts from Chelsea’s statement which can be read in full here:

In addition to feeling good, the young winger is hard at work training at home to build and maintain his fitness, as are the rest of the Chelsea squad.

It was first announced on Friday, March 13 that having been tested for the virus, Hudson-Odoi had tested positive, a result that meant as well as self-isolation, the men’s first-team building at Cobham was initially closed while it underwent a deep-cleaning procedure.

Following the deep-cleaning procedure at Cobham, the building has reopened for anyone working there who is not self-isolating.
