In what could be the bonehead move of the year so far (understatement), the owner of Nottingham Forest Football Club attended his team's championship match against Millwall while seemingly aware he had the Corona Virus. He hasn't confirmed he knew before he attended the game, only to reveal he has it a few days after attending the game, so it's possible the game itself is where he contracted the virus. Evangelos Marinakis, owner of what is known as the oldest football club in England, is a 52 year old Greek businessman who also owns the Greek soccer team known as Olympiakos.

27,307 spectators attended the game and again, it is not known if he had already contracted the virus. The owner was quoted as saying, "I feel good as I take all the necessary measures and I discipline to the doctors' instructions. I strongly advise all my fellow citizens to do the same. I wish all a quick recovery." Interesting, did the doctor encourage attending a soccer match with 27,000 plus fans in attendance?
