Former world champion boxer L Sarita Devi on Monday tested positive for COVID-19 along with her husband Thoiba Singh but both of them are asymptomatic.
The couple is based in Imphal.
"Me and Sarita have tested positive. We are right now moving to a COVID-19 care facility in Imphal. Both of us have no symptoms at all," Thoiba told PTI over phone.
Sarita is an Asian Games bronze-winner, besides being a five-time Asian Championships gold-medallist.
The 38-year-old is the second boxer to test positive for the virus after the legendary Dingko Singh.
Dingko, an Asian Games gold-medallist, had recovered from the infection after enduring month-long hospitalisation.
