All this social distancing can quarantining can be tough on kids. While we suspect that many of them will not be all that unpleased with the fact that they are getting some extra time off school, they are probably getting a bit bored by now.
They can't meet up with their friends or play with their local sports teams and there's only so much you can look at a screen before you look for other options.
Some have gotten very innovative with outdoor activities. Dublin native Sarah-Jayne Tobin took to Twitter to share a video of her son, who is an only child, using an innovative technique to keep his goalkeeping skills sharp during his time at home.
When you’re a goalkeeper... and an only child... in self isolation... and trying to keep up with your training... 😂😂came up with this himself! I’m so impressed. #coronavirus #StayHomeStaySafe pic.twitter.com/FFzJ1LE3N1

He will be flying it by the time the season gets back underway.
The video has received a remarkable reaction online, with the youngster receiving praise from the highest of places.
Manchester United goalkeeping legends Peter Schmeichel and David de Gea were both very impressed with what they saw, as was Watford's Ben Foster.
Nothing, not even an evil virus like the CONVID-19 should stop a talented goalkeeper from working on getting better. Well done young man👏👏 https://t.co/0od38Z2EMt
