Xavi said on Wednesday that he had recovered from the coronavirus, returned home and resumed his duties as Qatari side Al Sadd's head coach.
"Thank you so much for all the caring messages that I've received during these days," he wrote on his verified Instagram page alongside an image of him holding his daughter.
"I want to share with you that I'm recovered and back home with my family and the Al Sadd team," said the Spain legend, who was at the team training session on Wednesday.
Former Barcelona star Xavi, 40, announced on Saturday that he had tested positive for COVID-19 following routine screening of players and staff in Qatar's top-flight.
Xavi missed defending Qatar Stars League champions Al Sadd's 2-1 victory over Al-Khor, their first fixture since the resumption of the league which was suspended in March to contain the spread of COVID-19.
