David Moyes now out of seven-day isolation after coronavirus scare having embraced Mikel Arteta before West Ham’s clash with Arsenal

David Moyes has left the self-isolation he entered after embracing Mikel Arteta before and after the Premier League meeting between Arsenal and West Ham eight days ago.

Arteta became the most high-profile name in English football to announce testing positive for coronavirus on Thursday, causing Moyes to enter self-isolation as a precaution.

Moyes had shown no coronavirus symptoms and the recommended seven-day period of quarantine since his contact with Arteta has now passed.
