We've all done it over the last couple of weeks in quarantine, scrolling endlessly through social media looking for content to keep the spirits high.
It's fair to say some sportspeople have stepped up to the mark by providing us all with some respite, a little bit of much-needed distraction from the long days ahead.
Here are just some of the sportspeople we would recommend following for some cheering up over the next while:

The workout was not my only challenge. It was time for me to show Adidas my editing skills and make this happen. Every day I try and use my minimised space to keep my body in shape. I hope you all exercise and stay safe. This is a tough time. Let's look after each other, our families and our communities. Post a video of yourself that shows how you are staying creative whilst at home. Tag @adidas and #hometeam.

What kind of stuff do they post? Heartwarming content

His Twitter account has now become a place of both funny and heartwarming content. This video of a young cancer patient returning home to a parade near her home (social distancing included) is lovely:
This young lady - Coco - completed her final chemo treatment yesterday. On the drive home from the hospital friends in the neighborhood surprised her with a parade — social distancing style.
