A boy has been praised by Premier League stars after coming up with a clever way to continue his goalkeeping training during home isolation.
With the coronavirus outbreak forcing school closures and social isolation, the lack of team-mates and opponents is a challenge for aspiring footballers.
Creativity is required, and Sarah-Jayne Tobin posted a video of her son, an only child, kicking his ball against a fence before diving to save the rebounds.
