FOOTBALLERS are having to invent novel ways to entertain themselves during the coronavirus pandemic – David Luiz turning his talents to film production.
The Arsenal defender decided to take himself on at rock, paper, scissors in the mirror in a well-edited video clip.
After three goes where both Luiz and Luiz produced the same weapon, the Brazilian defender’s reflection won out with paper to wrap stone.
Luiz captioned the video: “Whoever loses cleans the house!!!”
The player’s 19.4million Instagram followers lapped up the mesmerising clip, including Patrick Kluivert, Billy Gilmour, Cesc Fabregas and Jorginho who all commented with a selection of approving emojis.
Fellow Brazilian Kenedy wrote a string of laughing emojis, tagging Emerson Palmieri in and the Chelsea ace replied “Ahhh I know right?”
The world’s sporting stars are developing a number of ways to stay alert while deprived of their livelihood.
Tennis ace Andy Murray and wife Kim started their 100 volley challenge on Thursday, challenging the court’s best and brightest to team up with their partners.
Several athletes have given the Nike Living Room Cup a go, including Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United playmaker Bruno Fernandes.
But the star of that ab crunch event has so far been Caster Semenya, the South African sprinter performing 176 reps in just 45 seconds.
Perhaps the most famous challenge was also one of the first from the pandemic lockdown – the Stay at Home Challenge that featured a set of keepy-uppies with a roll of toilet paper.
One example not to follow however is that of Aston Villa and Derby forward Rushian Hepburn-Murphy who managed to smash his own window while practicing football in his garden.
