How Europe's elite are coping with the coronavirus lockdown


While the coronavirus crisis has put a halt to European football, several stars are doing their best to keep fit from the comfort of their own homes.

The top leagues have all postponed their respective seasons, with no games scheduled to take place until early April in the Premier League, La Liga and UEFA Champions League.

Self-isolation has hindered the way players maintain their fitness, but that hasn't stopped the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Sergio Ramos and Willian.

The Bayern Munich star took to Instagram to share his methods, posting a photo of a weighted push-up, much to the delight of his young daughter.

For Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, a workout alongside his family helped maintain his motivation, all while Chelsea's Willian worked on his close control in the backyard of his London home.

Exercise bikes have also come to the aid of Europe's elite this past week, with Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira both keeping the kilometres in their legs should the season resume.

And out-of-favour midfielder Jesse Lingered has completed several sessions to keep himself fit, in a bid to play his way back into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's plans at Manchester United.

The 27-year-old filmed himself executing exercises to improve both his cardiovascular and muscular endurance.
