Arsenal goal poacher Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been treated in a hospital after contracting malaria while on international duty with Gabon.
Malaria is a tropical disease spread by mosquitoes. Symptoms usually appear seven to 18 days after infection, but it is not contagious.
The 31-year-old came on as a substitute in the Europa League quarter-final first leg against Slavia Prague on the 8th of April. However, missed Sunday’s win over Sheffield United.
The Gunners speedy forward found the back of the net in Gabon’s 3-0 win over DR Congo in Africa Cup of Nations qualification on 25 March.
“I’ve spent a few days in hospital this week,” he wrote on his official Instagram account.
“I’m already feeling much better every day, thanks to the great doctors that detected and treated the virus so quickly.
“I wasn’t really feeling myself the last couple of weeks but will be back stronger than ever soon!”
