“I’m more machine than man,” he wrote bluntly on his Instagram post alongside yet another photo of a lateral flow test, but this time showing only a single red line proving that he’s negative.

“Sometimes your genius is… It can actually cure diseases,” one fan joked.
Another added: “So not pregnant?”
A third wrote: “That covid should get a speeding fine the way it went by so fast.”
