With the Coronavirus lockdown continuing and Premier League football still suspended, Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has gone from teaching opposing defences a lesson to teaching schoolchildren by giving lessons on Spanish.

With schools unable to return after the Easter break, the BBC launched a new homeschooling service, which will help children across the country to keep up with their school work whilst enduring constant disruption due to the effects of the virus.

Speaking ahead of its launch Aguero, who is also a father of one child, said he was honoured to be doing his part. “It’s a tough time for children at the moment, and also for parents trying to keep them focused on their education from home. The BBC are doing brilliant work to help and I’m honoured to be able to play a part.”

Aguero’s lessons will see the striker aided children in learning Spanish, which will include counting, and will run for two weeks.
