As novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) tightens its grip across the globe, the governmental bodies continue to put in the hard labour in a bid to prevent its spread. With the COVID-19 cases rising by the day, the concerned authorities have been left with no option but to emplace travel bans, facilitate quarantine camps and put curfews in place.
While the recent turn of events continues to bamboozle the authorities, its preventive measures have disrupted normalcy in the lives of people across the globe.
The world of sports, too, has taken a hit with numerous sporting events either getting suspended, postponed or cancelled.View this post on InstagramOn a roll ð§» Wanted to get in on the action...#stayathomechallenge (recovery version ð)A post shared by (@marcusrashford)
With no playing time on the field, sportspersons have been pretty much restricted to home akin to the general public. But, while staying at home might seem like a drag, sports stars have found ways to keep themselves occupied and their fans entertained.
The 'Toilet Paper Challenge' and 'Stay At Home Challenge' are a couple of unique ways that are being used by sportspersons to not only keep themselves busy, but also spread awareness about COVID-19.
With a significant lack of any live sport on the horizon, sportspersons have had enough time on their hands to spread the word far and wide. The most recent sports star to join the 'Stay At Home Challenge' was none other than 'Universe Boss' Chris Gayle himself.March 19, 2020
The Jamaican marauder, on Thursday, took to social media to post a video of himself where he was seen working out indoors in his own uncanny manner.
The left-handed opener was seen wearing a Superhero-like costume, which reminded us of the WWE stars, and working out to the tunes of the iconic 'Eye of the Tiger' track.View this post on InstagramThere is always an opportunity to do something productive and be safe at the same time.

A day before Gayle, Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan, too, took up the 'Stay At Home Challenge'.
The Indian batsman took to Instagram where he was seen working out in what appeared to be the backyard of his residence. "There is always an opportunity to do something productive and be safe at the same time. Feels great to be in the nature right now and enjoying my workout as well. Stay Strong everyone," Dhawan wrote.
