Footballers, like all of us, have been stuck at home trying to keep themselves busy in whatever way possible as a result of the coronavirus.
A number of players have decided to take part in the toilet roll challenge, with some attempts better than others (sorry Jamie Carragher, that was a pretty pathetic attempt if we're being honest).
West Ham were due to travel to take on Tottenham last Friday in the Premier League, and Michail Antonio was keen to see the London derby go ahead - albeit virtually. As a result, he took to his Twitter last Monday, posting:
The game was set up for last Friday. However, the pair decided to raise the stakes, with the loser having to do a full apology afterwards. Not too bad. Oh, they'd have to do it in the other team’s shirt.

Not a chance mate!!!!!!!!!! @WestHam sort me out with a kit for this guy I’m taking him to school. Friday 8pm work for you?!— Michail Antonio (@Michailantonio) March 17, 2020
The game of FIFA was shown live via streaming service Twitch, and people tuned in to watch Sessegnon cruise to a comfortable 2-0 win over Antonio's West Ham side. Giovani Lo Celso and Lucas Moura were on target for the virtual Spurs, but it could have been worse as Sessegnon had two penalties saved.
After the game, Antonio revealed his devastation, but had a theory as to why he lost. With clear resemblances to the battle of Coleen Rooney vs Rebekah Vardy earlier in the season, Antonio took to his Twitter to share his thoughts. He said: "I think it's clear what's happened..........my controller must have been broken."
ABSOLUTELY GUTTED! Was embarrassing out there today and I’m way better than that. The passing was off, shooting was bad and couldn’t tackle. I think it’s clear what’s happened............ my controller must have been broken I’LL BE BACK #FifaLondonDerby pic.twitter.com/4wq4Fk4CCQ— Michail Antonio (@Michailantonio) March 20, 2020
Elsewhere, Antonio wrote: "
As for Sessegnon, well, he's claimed the bragging rights for Spurs now. He also posted on Twitter after the game, claiming that the win 'could have been more'.
All in all, yes it was a bit of fun, but it was all for a very good cause as
