Tennis players train during Italy coronavirus lockdown - from their rooftops

An incredible video has emerged of two young neighbours playing tennis - from each other's rooftops.

The footage shows 14-year-old Vittoria Oliveri and her friend Carola, 11, impressively striking the ball in the Liguria region of Italy.

The players' coach, Dionisio Poggi, told AFP: "They know each other well, they are friends and they live in two neighbouring buildings.

"Carola, 11, is in the region's top two or three in her age group."

Their antics have attracted attention from some of the world's best tennis players, including world No 6 Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Tennis players from all over the world have been using the #tennisathome hashtag on Twitter as they try to train during the coronavirus pandemic.

The hashtag was launched by Roger Federer, who posted a video of himself hitting the ball against a wall despite snowy weather.
