McCrorie told the Scottish Sun: ‘We were all tested at Portsmouth and unfortunately my results have come back positive.

‘I am back home and staying by myself. I am self-isolating. But I feel fine and I am displaying no symptoms.

‘I would urge everyone to follow the government guidelines that have been put in place.

‘We all have a part to play in slowing the spread of the virus and that means adhering to the guidelines set out.
