All football has been cancelled until April 30 at the earliest due to the coronavirus pandemic - with further suspensions expected.

And teams across the country are doing whatever they can to not only limit the spread, but stay match-ready for whenever the season restarts.

Lingard told Sky Sports News: "[Man Utd players] have a WhatsApp group with the fitness coach.

"He's giving us daily fitness plans to do all week, so we're all keeping active.

"We're in contact with the manager and the coaching staff, seeing how they're getting on, so we're still a tight-knit group."

As well as working on his own fitness, Lingard has been doing his bit to keep morale up for his social media followers.

A host of fun, yet bizarre trends have swept Twitter and Instagram in recent weeks as people look to pass the time while on lockdown.

The #StayAtHomeChallenge - where stars tested their keepy-uppy skills with a toilet roll - was just one.

And Lingard revealed he is more than happy to keep being nominated and keep taking part, saying it helps to unite the nation.

He continued: "I keep getting nominated for all these challenges and it's only right to take part in them.

"I feel like they are getting everyone together."
