Last December, 2020 was being looked upon as the year of sports as fans marked their calendars for major sporting events.
But, in a matter of just a few months, the year 2020, that once held the promise of exciting sporting action, continues to leave sports fans frustrated and disappointed - all thanks to novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) threatening the very existence of mankind.
With travel restrictions, quarantine camps and curfews all around, the fast-spreading virus continues to heckle normalcy and traumatise people across the globe. The sporting world isn't alienated to the repercussions of the scary epidemic either. The sporting events have either been cancelled or suspended owing to the fast-spreading virus.
The month of March, especially in the football world, sets the tone for a thrilling season finale. Marking the beginning of a pulsating end to the season, this time of the year generally has all club football competitions reaching a befitting end with immense pressure on the participating sides to finish on a high. But, none of that is happening right now.
When you hear that there's no EURO 2020 or Copa America this summer ?? pic.twitter.com/at5GKexDS7â Goal (@goal) March 17, 2020
Football leagues including Premier League, Serie A, La Liga and Bundesliga amongst others have also been suspended as the countries continue to battle COVID-19. And, to rub salt to the wounds, the much-awaited Euro 2020 and this year's Copa America have also been pushed back by a year.
The lack of footballing action has not left just the fans, but also the players scratching their heads, wondering what to do with all the idle time at hand.
Forced to stay indoors due to contagion, while some have been busy taking up social media challenges, others are finding ways to keep their fitness levels in check and giving all gym enthusiasts a key lesson on how to remain fit at home.
