The star, who along with his wife Sabrina Dhowre Elba has recovered after contracting coronavirus, said it had been a "scary" time.

Speaking about the virus and recovery, Elba - who also took part in the global One World: Together At Home event on Saturday - told the Associated Press their cases had been "very mild".

"I think that the world should take a week of quarantine every year just to remember this time. Remember each other. I really do.

"I think it's… other species use it. It's called hibernation. But it does remind you that the world doesn't tick on your time."
