Prem stars including Rashford, Mount and Fernandes compete in Stay At Home Challenge with loo roll amid coronavirus – The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED star Anthony Martial joined in with the "Stay At Home Challenge" by showing off his skills – with a toilet roll… and he's by no means the only star to do so.

As the coronavirus pandemic rages on worldwide, many people have chosen to stay indoors and upload clips showing off their talents.

The #StayAtHomeChallenge continues! ??‍♂️⚽️?⁣ ⁣ Special thanks to @marcelotwelve @tammyabraham1 @jeromeboateng @oficialrc3 @iscoalarcon @stevengerrard @marcusrashford @philfoden @milotrashica7 @martial_9

And Martial picked up where Old Trafford pal Bruno Fernandes left off on Wednesday with his own attempt.

Mason Mount – along with Chelsea team-mate Tammy Abraham – took to social media to share their own attempts.

Real Madrid duo Marcelo and Isco – along with former Liverpool captain took on the challenge today, in a bid to combat the boredom of being stuck at home.

Across the city, England youngster Phil Foden also shared his attempt.

But the most hilarious effort came from veteran defender Felipe Melo – who opted to avoid the keepy-uppy portion of the challenge and just two-foot the loo roll.

With the spread of the disease continuing, the Premier League and EFL were left with no choice but to suspend matches until at least April 3.

And many people have posted their football skills on to social media with the hashtag "StayAtHomeChallenge" to pass the time.

On Wednesday, Jamie Carragher, Odion Ighalo, Granit Xhaka and Theo Walcott have all had a crack themselves, too.

Walcott shared a video of himself washing his hands before attempting some keepy-uppies with a teddy bear – before challenging Lewis Hamilton, Aaron Ramsey and team-mate Andre Gomes to follow suit.

Another January signing for Man Utd, Ighalo, kept it short and sweet, channeling his inner-Peter Kay with his very own "AV IT" moment with a toilet roll.

Liverpool legend Carragher proved why he was an old school centre-back during his career, as he failed to keep the loo roll under control.

The Sky Sports pundit finally got on a good run, as he flailed around desperately keeping the roll up in the air.

#StayAtHomeChallenge Challenge accepted @433 – #StayAtHome, wash those hands…keep safe everyone. I challenge @aaronramsey @aftgomes21 and @lewishamilton show us what you’ve got lads!

Sergio Ramos and Hector Bellerin are just two other superstars to have had a crack at the latest viral trend.

Other talents such as dance moves, drinking challenges and home workouts have also been shared during the coronavirus lockdown.

Liverpool star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is another footballer who has used social media to show off a skill.

But this was not with a ball – a video of him dancing up a flight of steps with girlfriend Perrie Edwards impressed many after the Little Mix star shared on TikTok.
