City defender Micah Richards is making a good recovery from swine flu after being diagnosed by it this weekend.
Richards is currently on holiday in Ayia Napa in Cyprus and is said to have contracted the virus after initially thinking it could be alcohol poisoning or a chest infection.
But Richards' publicist Max Clifford has spoken out insisting the England under-21 player is firmly on the road to recovery.
"He is fine. He is virtually back to his old self now and can't wait to get back home."
