In a joint statement, the group said they were "feeling well and looking forward to being home".

"All of our group, including the six in other countries, have recovered quickly from the virus having required minimal medical treatment during our time in isolation," they said.

"We understand the virus can be dangerous for some, but we also want to share the important facts of our situation to help reassure people.

"We want to thank everybody who has been involved in our care, in particular the NHS nurses and doctors who have looked after us over the past few days."
