With the first week of the coronavirus-induced sports-free period in full flow, players from the Ghana Premier League have taken to social media to keep their fans entertained.
A video of Hearts of Oak midfielder Emmanuel Nettey juggling a roll of toilet paper went viral after he posted it on his Twitter account, along with a call on his colleagues to stay safe during the COVID-19 outbreak.

More videos have surfaced of other Premier League players taking advantage of the football hiatus to test their skills with T-Rolls instead of footballs.
And they aren’t half bad too.
Liberty’s Elvis Kyei Baffour, who has found the net eight times in the current league season, proved he is not just adept with a ball at his feet.

Matches in the Ghana Premier League, along with all other sporting activities, were suspended by the President earlier this week after the country confirmed it’s first cases of coronavirus.
Ghana has so far recorded seven cases of the disease.
