The man who rose to fame as the pro wrestler called The Rock says he and his family were pinned down for a while by the coronavirus.

Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to post a long video, which you can watch in its entirety below, to talk about his family’s ordeal.

He says he, his wife and his two young daughters were stricken by COVID-19.

He says he was shocked to hear they all had the disease — and that dealing with the illness was “one of the most challenging and difficult things” they’ve had to endure. He says he and his wife had a “rough go” of it with the virus.

But he says his daughters “bounced back” quickly after having sore throats.
