Piers Morgan’s son has fired a reply back to Good Morning Britain’s Adil Ray, after he appeared to take aim at Piers over his Simon Biles comments.

England cricketer Ben Stokes has taken an indefinite break from the sport, in a bid to focus on his mental health.

Adil, 47, who occasionally presents alongside Susanna Reid, took to Twitter to discuss Ben Stokes' decision, writing: “Have those who bullied Naomi Osaka & Simone Biles gone after Ben Stokes yet?

"They don’t tend to go after men like him do they? Funny that.

"Take all the time you need legend. Wishing you a healthy recovery and we’ll all be waiting should you wish to carry that bat & ball again."

Following Adil’s tweet, Piers’ eldest son Spencer, 28, shared it on his Twitter and commented back: “Fakest virtue signalling gimp in the game."

Despite his son hitting out at the comment, it appears Piers has so far stayed silent on the matter of Adil’s tweet.

Piers recently criticised 24 year Simone Biles, after she pulled out of her team final to focus on her mental health.

When asked by one of his millions of Twitter followers if he had an opinion on Ben Stokes’ mental health matter, Piers replied: “If he quit in the middle of a Test match with no physical injury, leaving his teammates in the lurch like Simon Biles did, & complained he wasn’t having enough ‘fun’, then I would have said that.

"Especially if he had GOAT embroidered on his shirt. But he didn’t. So I didn’t."

Piers is currently battling the coronavirus, but told his concerned social media followers recently that he is feeling slightly better.

The 56 year old contracted the virus while at the Euro 2020 final on Sunday 11 July at Wembley, where he thought regulations had "disintegrated" as it was a "free-for-all".

And plenty of Twitter followers reached out to him to ask him how he was doing, with one, in particular, saying: "Your diary/account of getting it at the football final and the subsequent days sound horrible, Piers.

"Hope you're feeling better and the family are OK?" the worried fan concluded.

Piers quickly put his concerns to rest, as he replied: "Thanks Mike, slowly coming out the other side now…"

The TV presenter previously described how he was left with chills, aches, a horrific cough, and sneezing fits after testing positive for Covid following the Euro 2020 final.

The former Good Morning Britain host told Mail on Sunday that his "confidence" that the event, which saw England lose 3-2 after missing three penalty shootouts, would be safe amid the pandemic had "disintegrated" as it was a "free-for-all".

Two days after the big match, he began feeling unwell and opted to take a lateral flow test, which came back positive. He then took a PCR test that confirmed the diagnosis, despite having had both doses of the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine.
