A German Olympic cyclist who tested positive for COVID-19 said that being quarantined at the Tokyo Games was the “closest he will ever get to being in prison.”

Simon Geschke was forced to isolate himself in a hotel room outside of the Olympic village in Tokyo for at least six days until he received a negative test, per the COVID-19 guidelines for athletes.

“In the official Quarantine Hotel of the #Tokyo2020 games. Locked windows, leaving the room only 3 times a day, speaker on the room ceiling to wake you up at 7am to check your temperature,” Geschke wrote on Twitter.

“Fair to say that this is (hopefully) the closest i will ever get to being in prison,” he added.

Geschke also shared a photo of one of his meals, which he deemed a “disgrace.”

“Food is pretty ‘basic’ too,” he wrote alongside a photo of plain rice, chicken and broccoli. “Disgrace, really not worth the hassle.”

Five days into his quarantine, he shared a video of himself on a stationary bike.

“Back riding a little. Like a hamster in a wheel but it feels great!” he wrote.

But by Saturday, he was cleared to leave quarantine and go to the airport to travel home.

“End of the most useless trip of my career, super excited to get out of quarantine and fly back home,” he tweeted.
