In times like these it's more important than ever to not only stay safe, but to also keep fit and healthy.

For children who are at home to remain active the Premier League and BBC’s Super Movers keeps them moving while they learn, while for adults Sport England’s #StayInWorkOut exercises and a handy way to stay active around the house.

Premier League players themselves have been keen to show just how important, and easy to do, regular exercise remains as we follow Government advice to stay at home.

Theo Walcott has produced a short fitness video to help supporters stay in condition, as part of Everton's Blue Family campaign.

For Crystal Palace's Vicente Guaita and West Ham United's Lukasz Fabianski, all you need is a skipping rope and a mat. 

Arsenal defender Cedric Soares, meanwhile, has enlisted the help of a new personal trainer - his pet dog, Romeu!

Felipe Anderson has also secured the help of a dog to keep his skills sharp.

Alireza Jahanbakhsh has got involved with the #StayAtHomeChallenge. Can you beat him? 

It's just as important to stimulate the brain and James Milner is getting ready for a new role as a substitute teacher.

With schools closing in the UK, we are making our free curriculum-linked resources on PLPrimaryStars.com available to all, not just teachers, for home learning, with no registration required. 

Nicolas Otamendi has found another fun way to put his mind to the test, while Man City team-mate Ilkay Gundogan eyes up a future career.

Richarlison has found a catchy 20-second tune to sing while washing his hands, while Alexandre Lacazette emphasises the importance of staying upbeat.
