Former U.S. Davis Cup captain Patrick McEnroe says in a video posted on social media that he tested positive for the coronavirus.

McEnroe, younger brother of eight-time major champion John, said he did a drive-through test in upstate New York after developing what he called “minor symptoms” about 10 days ago.

Patrick McEnroe said: “The good news is I feel fine. My symptoms have passed. I feel, really, 100 percent.”

As a player, he won one tournament in singles and 16 in doubles, including the 1989 French Open. He succeeded his brother as Davis Cup captain and served in that job for nearly a decade, leading the United States to the title in 2007. The younger McEnroe also served as general manager of player development for the U.S. Tennis Association.

He and his brother now are both TV analysts for tennis matches, sometimes working alongside each other in the booth.

THE CHINA government has ordered all major sports events to remain suspended because of the coronavirus outbreak, meaning the country’s basketball league will have to push back its planned restart.

GLOBAL SOCCER union FIFPro says seven-time Slovakian champion Zilina is opting for bankruptcy after offering players a “take it or leave it” 80 percent pay cut.

FIFPro says it believes Zilina is the first European club to go into liquidation since the coronavirus outbreak. The union says Zilina “refused to negotiate with the (Slovak) player union.”

The move follows the club selling 20-year-old forward Robert Bozeník to Feyenoord in January for a reported fee of about $4.9 million. Zilina is second in the now-suspended Slovak league. The club played in the Champions League in 2010-11 but lost all six games in a group that included Chelsea and Marseille.
