“I stay in shape, I’m active, but it got the better of me very quickly and that was the alarming thing,” Moore said.

“I went downhill quickly, but in the last few days I feel like my body is getting back to where it should be as an individual. That is very positive because my body has not been mine.

“By resting, I am building my strength and energy levels, which will allow my body to get stronger.

“I’m looking forward to going back, but I have to listen to medical advice.”

Former West Brom boss Moore left Doncaster Rovers in early March to take over Hillsborough.

But the Owls are in grave danger of being relegated to League One as they are four points behind the Derby, which is ranked 21st, with two games to play.

Moore, who doesn’t have a set timescale for getting back to work, said: “I’m heartbroken, really heartbroken, because I want to be there. I want to be there in the heart, but I have to rest.

“I would like to thank you very much for the incredible support I have received. I was overwhelmed and moved by love. “

Leicester City star Harvey Barnes has been ruled out for the remainder of the season, ending his slim hopes of Euro 2020.

The winger will undergo a second operation on the injured knee.
