Reddy N. Sikki and India badminton team physio Kiran Challagundla returned a negative COVID-19 test on Saturday, two days after both tested positive for the virus.
It was huge sense of relief for Reddy who was shocked by the initial news.
“It was little irritating because I didn’t show any symptoms,” Reddy told Indian media.
The duo returned negative on Saturday after they decided to get themselves tested again in a private hospital on Friday.
The Gopichand Academy in Hyderabad, India, where Reddy and other badminton athletes train, immediately closed down on Thursday for sanitation and the camp suspended for a few days.
Gopichand said that the camp would resume from Monday.
