A more contagious variant of Covid-19 first reported in the UK has been detected in three people associated with the Australian Open tennis event, officials have confirmed.

The three people are not players and initially tested positive for the virus shortly after arriving in Australia last week. All three have been in strict quarantine since their arrival.

"The residents arrived in Melbourne on a dedicated Australian Open charter flight on 15 January and returned their first positive tests on 15, 17 and 18 January," a spokesperson for Covid-19 Quarantine Victoria said on Saturday, reports Xinhua news agency.

"The three residents include two men in their 30s and a man in his 50s and all are non-players."
