Sporting stars, clubs and schools have been setting a series of skills challenge while the UK is on lockdown to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

Space may be restricted to the house or garden, but there has been a wide degree of innovation to keep the young, and old, on their toes and honing their sports craft.

Cambridge United Community Trust Premier League Kicks officer Sam Squire is setting a series of daily tests to perfect, Cambridge Rugby Club's head of community Ben Penfold is doing similar, St Faith's hockey coach Nick Thompson is posing challenges with stick and ball and Cambridgeshire Cricket's coaches have a range of different tasks.

It is also being practised at the highest level.

Cambridge United's on-loan Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jack Roles used a volleyball net for a family contest, as did Great Britain hockey player Tess Howard.

Former England scrum-half Kyran Bracken has risen to the challenges posed with a rugby ball, and The Perse School cricket teacher Sean Park has demonstrated his skills with a bat and ball.

During this period of self-isolation and lockdown, it is a great way to keep the sporting eye in and at the same time honing the skill set, whatever the sport.

See below some great examples of sporting skills.
