A young Irish boy is not letting the coronavirus pandemic get in the way of his goalkeeping training, and his efforts are going viral.

Nathan Fanagan is an only child from Tallaght in Dublin and like every other child in the country, he's being encouraged to keep his distance from friends to combat the spread of covid-19.

With no friends to come over for a kickabout, for now, the 11-year-old has come up with a great way to keep up his goalkeeping skills:

So far it's been retweeted by Manchester United keeper David de Gea and watched more than 7.2 million times.

It's also been shared by ESPN, Sky Sports and Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel.

Peter has said "Nothing, not even an evil virus like the CONVID-19 should stop a talented goalkeeper from working on getting better. Well done young man".
