Chelsea revealed that England internationals Mason Mount and Declan Rice would go head to head in a game of FIFA20 between the Blues and London rivals West Ham on Monday night.

Bristol City made Ashton Gate available for an ambulance crew who are able to undertake cornavirus tests for NHS staff.

Cricket

Lancashire announced they would offer up to 5,000 tickets to NHS workers to a Vitality Blast match this season as a gesture of support for their efforts against the Coronavirus. Dates will be confirmed once the cricket schedule has been finalised.

Warwickshire steward Keith Morris got a surprise when he picked up the phone and heard first-team seamer Olly Hannon-Dalby on the other end of the line as players call around members and staff during the lockdown.

“I had a lovely chat to Olly,” Morris said. “We were chatting for almost an hour. How amazing for the players to take time out to call us and check how we are doing.”

Essex players Tom Westley, Simon Harmer, Shane Snater, Rishi Patel, Robin Das and Eshun Kalley spent the day in the kitchen to provide meals for NHS staff.

Sussex coach Jason Gillespie got a pedicure from his daughter.
