UAE Team Emirates sprinter Fernando Gaviria says that he's training again at home in Colombia – indoors – after having recovered fully from contracting the coronavirus.

Gaviria announced that he'd tested positive for COVID-19 on March 12, following the conclusion of the UAE Tour at the end of February, which finished two days early once it was clear that the virus had hit the race entourage, with two staff members of one of the teams initially having been announced as having tested positive.
