Madonna has reportedly visited several countries in just three weeks despite Covid-19 travel bans.

According to The Daily Mail, the Queen of Pop has flown from Los Angeles to London then to Malawi and Kenya as part of her winter trip.

The singer, 62, has been accompanied on the getaway by her boyfriend, dancer Ahlamalik Williams, 26. She was also joined for much of the trip by five of her children.

On Christmas Eve, she, Williams and her four adopted children flew from LA to London.

There, they collected Madonna's eldest son Rocco, 20, who joined the group on their visit to Africa.

On December 28, the group flew to Malawi via a stopover in Egypt.

They spent a week in Malawi where they met with President Lazarus Chakwera, and visited a hospital which Madonna founded. On Wednesday they flew to Kenya.

Sources close to Madonna said the family members have all been taking regular coronavirus tests.
