Spurs star Alderweireld pledges donation of tablets to hospitals and nursery homes

Spurs star Toby Alderweireld has revealed he plans to donate dozens of tablets and computers to help people communicate during the coronavirus pandemic.

As regular life goes into lockdown for people in the UK, Alderweireld has pledged to spend his money on helping loved ones speak to one another.

"I hope everyone is following the Government measures to stop the further spread of the coronavirus," Alderweireld said in a video posted to Twitter.

"The virus creates many needs, especially the lack of personal contact. If people are sick they can't see their friends, they can't see their family and stuff like this.

"So my plan is to buy dozens of tablets to give to the hospitals and nursery homes so people can video chat with their loved ones and their friends to get through this tough period.

"In the next couple of days and weeks I'm trying to get those tablets to the places where they can help."
