Sports stars and clubs across the world continue to help their local communities – and find new ways to amuse themselves – during the coronavirus pandemic.
Here, the PA news agency looks at some of the best examples from May 21.
England boss Gareth Southgate, who was set to name his Euro 2020 squad this week, checked in on two NHS frontline workers.
Southgate called Three Lions fans Luke Taylor, a podiatry manager in Manchester, and Lucy Gilpin, a nurse at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton.
He said: “We know the opportunity for our players to represent England on the European stage will come again but for now it’s important the nation gets behind those playing their part in helping to return society to a sense of normality.
A call from the boss 😄
Gareth Southgate surprised two of our NHS heroes recently to express his appreciation for their incredible efforts during these difficult times.
To Luke, Lucy and everyone working on the frontline: thank you! pic.twitter.com/oDuOF2f6R9

“It was a great to make a call to Luke and Lucy and hear how they are coping during this period of adversity; something that I know thousands of others throughout the country can relate to.”
England internationals Harry Kane, Millie Bright, Tyrone Mings and Ben Chilwell also did the same.
Kane was also enjoying what he does best at the Tottenham training ground, where Spurs boss Jose Mourinho enjoyed a cycle.
Feeling fitter every day. Hope everyone’s keeping well ⚽️☀️ pic.twitter.com/B6tFdzwuBk
