James Milner cleans as Usain Bolt keeps his distance – Monday’s goodwill stories

Sports stars and clubs across the world continue to help their local communities – plus find new ways to amuse themselves – during the coronavirus pandemic.

Here, the PA news agency looks at some of the best examples from April 13.

Football

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic turned up for a training session at Hammarby – the Swedish club where he is part-owner.

Liverpool midfielder James Milner has plenty of chores to do, one of which appeared to be pretty boring…

Athletics

Usain Bolt took to Twitter to offer a cheeky reminder of social distancing guidelines, posting a picture of himself crossing the line at the Olympics a long way clear of his 100m competitors.

Cricket

Kevin Pietersen released an impassioned plea to his fans to contribute to the prime minister of Pakistan’s ‘Covid Relief Fund’.

Boxing

Tyson Fury and his wife Paris teed up their first live workout, which will take place on Tuesday morning. Fury announced his brother Tommy and his partner Molly-Mae Hague – who were runners-up on Love Island last summer – would be taking part.

And Derek Chisora found himself some new sparring partners.

Cycling

Spanish cycling team Movistar have launched a competition asking their fans to design a new jersey which the squad will wear whenever racing resumes, with proceeds from the project to be used to support those affected by the outbreak.

Movistar – who have young British rider Gabriel Cullaigh on their roster – said signed jerseys in the winning design would be delivered to the Spanish Red Cross and Italy’s Protezione Civile (Civil Protection).

Golf

Open champion Shane Lowry believes the coronavirus pandemic has provided him with a fresh perspective on life.

He tweeted: “I’ll never take anything for granted again, 9 holes with the lads, dinner with Wendy in our favourite restaurant, a pint in my favourite pubs with friends. Going for lunch and talking garbage all day with loads of coffee. All of my favourite things and can’t do any. Strange times.”
