'Soul Makossa' African jazz icon Manu Dibango has tested positive for COVID-19. The news was announced on the Cameroonian saxophonist's Facebook page.

A regular headliner at Ronnie Scott's over the years and an inspiration to such players as UK jazz icon Courtney Pine and rising star Alain Oyono, the saxophonist in Youssou N'Dour's band, the 86-year-old is resting as he recovers.
