Greg Norman was quarantined at his Florida home

Former world number one Greg Norman is in hospital in the United States with symptoms of coronavirus.

The 65-year-old Australian tested negative on Tuesday, but said on Thursday that he had a mild fever, cough, aches and pains, and headache.

The 1986 and 1993 Open Champion then posted a photo of himself on social media from his Florida hospital bed.

"This sums it all up. My Christmas Day," he said, adding that he "wanted to get this [virus] behind us".

Norman spent over 300 weeks at the top of the world rankings and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2001.

He competed in the PNC C Championship in Orlando last week with his son, Greg Jr., finishing in part of the ninth.

His son confirmed that he and his wife had tested positive for Covid-19 and were in isolation at home.

England's Ian Poulter was one of those who sent messages to Norman wishing him a "speedy recovery".
