Watford keeper Foster on self-isolation: I'm completely bored!

Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster has revealed what he's been doing during the coronavirus outbreak.

The 36-year-old is completely bored at home after being diagnosed with a cold!

"I've just been making soups for the family. Nice, healthy, veggie soups," he told talkSPORT.

"I was actually fairly ill last week, to the point the club were quite concerned it might be coronavirus so they sent a nurse down to do a test on me, but thankfully it was negative. I just had a cold.

"Once I got the results though to say it wasn't coronavirus, I was like: 'Right I need to start doing something', because I was pulling my hair out.

"It's very boring. I'm probably doing the same as most people. I'm watching a lot of Netflix, watching TV, reading random and weird stuff, anything to pass the time.

"I'm one for the classics. I've re-watched The Office this week for the 100th time, Entourage, I watched Castaway last night with the wife, I've watched a few Star Wars things – there's plenty to keep up with!

"You've got to watch what you eat as well. When you're bored and not feeling so great it's so easy to just start picking at food and not really watching your diet, but you've got to be careful."
