Albion’s Ezequiel Schelotto has suggested Britain’s coronavirus lockdown measures do not go far enough.

The Albion defender took to social media after Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed new restrictions on Monday night to tackle the spread of coronavirus.

The restrictions included a ban on public gatherings of more than two people and limiting people to exercising once a day.

But Albion’s Argentinean wing-back was unimpressed.

He posted in Spanish on Twitter: “Imagine now, people who never ran now are going to do it ... this is not a serious measure. You have to stay home completely if you want to stop all this, I say !!!”

The Seagulls players have been working to their own personal training programmes at home and utilising a fitness app which allows them to interact while working out during the suspension of football during the global pandemic.

  • The coronavirus Sussex Crisis Fund has been set up to help those affected by the pandemic. The Argus’s charity and American Express have each donated £50,000 to kick-start the appeal.

Grants will usually be for up to £5,000. More information is available at www.sussexgiving.
