Greg Norman returns home from hospital to await coronavirus test results

Former world number one golfer Greg Norman is out of hospital as he continues his recovery from coronavirus.

The 65-year-old spent Christmas Day in hospital, having self-isolated on his return to Australia after competing in Orlando’s PNC Championship.

The two-time Open champion has been released from hospital to continue self-isolating at home, and is still awaiting the results of his Covid-19 tests.

Nicknamed ‘The Great White Shark’, Norman won the Open Championship in 1986 and 1993, spending more than 300 weeks at the top of golf’s world rankings.

The Australian was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2001.

“Again thank you all for your concerns love and support and please be safe, stay healthy and be smart,” said Norman.

“And let’s put this 2020 in our rear-view mirrors and look to 2021 and beyond where we can get back to life in whatever the new normal will be. God bless you all.”
