Legendary Indian sprinter Milkha Singh, who has tested positive for COVID-19, was on Monday hospitalised, with his son and ace golfer Jeev Milkha Singh answering that the move was a safety measure. The 91-year-old Milkha had been in home isolation at his Chandigarh residence after he tested positive for the virus on Wednesday. He has now been admitted to Fortis hospital in Mohali. Hospital sources said that Milkha’s condition was “stable”. “He has been hospitalised. He was weak and not eating since yesterday, so we had to hospitalise him,” Jeev told PTI.

“Though his parameters seemed alright, we thought it is safer to have him admitted where he would be under supervision of senior doctors,” Jeev added.

“He is under good care of doctors there. He is a strong man, always positive and will recover soon,” added the golfer, who reached here on Saturday from Dubai after his father tested positive.

“Only I returned positive on Wednesday and I am surprised,” Milkha had told PTI after testing positive.

None of the other family members, including Milkha’s wife Nirmal Kaur, a former India volleyball captain, returned a positive test.
