"If you're wondering what football commentators do when there is no football to commentate on..."

BT Sport’s Ian Darke videoed himself commentating as he scores a goal in his back garden with the country in lockdown because of COVID-19.

While everyone is being told to stay at home there’s also no live football on TV while the season is suspended due to the coronavirus.

Solitaire’s the only game in town – literally.

Darke kicks off the video:

If you’re wondering what football commentators do when there is no football to commentate on…

VAR has had its best week of the season.

He commentates as he dribbles around the yard before striking the ball into an empty net.

And then encourages us to “try to stay sane” during this difficult time.
