Paul is one of a number of celebrities to have spoken publicly about their coronavirus diagnosis, joining the likes of Tom Hanks and Idris Elba.

Tom Hanks updated fans on his condition last night, revealing that he and his wife Rita Wilson - who was also diagnosed - were feeling better.

He wrote: "Hey, folks. Two weeks after our first symptoms and we feel better. Sheltering in place works like this: You don't give it to anyone - You don't get it from anyone. Common sense, no? Going to take awhile, but if we take care of each other, help where we can, and give up some comforts... this, too, shall pass. We can figure this out. Hanx."
