Marcell Jacobs returned to Rome from Nairobi, via Amsterdam. The Olympic champion, struck by an intestinal virus resulting in hospitalization while he was in Kenya, where he should have made his debut in the outdoor season last Saturday, returning for the first time to 100 meters after the triumph in Tokyo, arrived just before 13 at Fiumicino airport accompanied by his coach Paolo Camossi. Jacobs is now awaited by new investigations from which it will be possible to understand if next Wednesday he will be able to compete at the Savona Meeting.
“Marcell is a bit physically depressed. We are immediately going to do, directly from the airport, the health checks at an institute in Rome for this strong gastroenteritis, probably of a viral nature, which struck him in Nairobi – explained Camossi – It will depend now what the doctors will tell us and any electrolyte aftermath. I hope for a recovery in two, three days to be able to resume the course of training. The schedule, from the calendar, includes the meeting in Savona, on May 18th, as the next commitment.
