Incredible Video Proves Zinedine Zidane's First Touch Was A Gift From The Gods

In regards to lockdowns amid the coronavirus pandemic, France returned to a national lockdown last month while the UK's begun on Thursday.

Non-elite sport has been postponed until further notice in England and a Balham Under-14 player let his voice be heard on Sky Sports.

"I don't understand it," begins the smiling teenage footballer. "Why can't we go play football in an open area, but we can sit down in a classroom; stuffy? It's like they don't like sports."

He continued: "I really don't know why we can go to school with 1,500 kids - but with 23 kids at a football pitch, we can't do it. It's annoying."

The views of the Balham FC youth player (who's counting the ref as one of the 23 on the pitch) actually seem to be in line with those of Sir Patrick Vallance, the UK government's chief scientific adviser.

Sir Patrick did not advise a youth ban on youth sports outside school. Also, in response to being asked by an MP if he knew of any instance of coronavirus infection taking place between children playing grassroots football, Vallance replied,

"Not that I'm aware of. There may be evidence, but I haven't seen it."
