Panama City: Boxing legend Roberto "Hands of Stone" Duran, a six-time world champion, had to be admitted to a hospital after being diagnosed with a non-life-threatening condition on Thursday with the coronavirus, his children said.

"Test results have just arrived for my dad, and they confirm he is positive for COVID-19," the legendary fighter's son Robin Duran said on Instagram.

"Thank God for now he doesn't have symptoms beyond a cold. He is not in intensive care nor on a respirator, just under observation," he added.

Duran took part in 119 fights between the ages of 16 and 50 -- with 103 wins and 16 defeats. IANS
