Harry Maguire: 'I feared for my life during arrest in Greece thinking I was being kidnapped'

Speaking of the initial incident with his sister, Maguire said: “These two men approached my little sister, asked her where she was from.

“She responded and then my fiancee, Fern, has seen my little sister’s eyes go into the back of her head. She ran over and she was fainting, she was in and out of consciousness.”

Appears confirmed that a case of coronavirus has been identified on Ithaki, a local now in self-isolation at home.

Also heard that a couple who arrived by yacht have been sent to the quarantine hotel in Argostoli after the female tested positive for coronavirus.

Thanks, pessadianos, but you haven't been visiting GGi for very long, when you have you'll notice that anything I can't confirm in English-language tends to go in this Grapevine / News Briefs thread, so that's a give-away that it may not be fact.

However, as I'm sure you'll acknowledge, just because something has been printed as news in The Times or Kathimerini doesn't necessarily make it fact, not does its absence from the English-language press mean it didn't happen. I'm pretty sure those two items you refer to are fact, or I wouldn't have posted about them.
