Right now, the world is battling the crippling crisis of Coronavirus. As per the World Health Organization (WHO) report, the best way to fight the COVID-19 is by using hand sanitizer and washing hands frequently, and of course practicing social distancing.


In a bid to promote healthy handwashing, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone posted a video on Twitter in which she can be seen washing her hands thoroughly with soap. Deepika sported a mask on her face and demonstrated an effective way of cleaning the hands. The song ‘Three Little Birds’ played in the background while she took the challenge.

DP has now nominated three famous sportspersons, Tennis ace Roger Federer, footballer Christiano Ronaldo and Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli for ‘Safe Hands Challenge’.


The outbreak of Coronavirus in sports has led to all major events being called off or postponed. Cristiano Ronaldo, who won the Euro 2020 with Portugal in 2016, will now have to defend the crown a year later in 2021 than in June. Ronaldo’s Juventus teammates Blaise Matuidi and Daniele Rugani tested positive for Coronavirus resulting in Ronaldo being quarantined back home.

Virat Kohli, who led India in the series against New Zealand, is awaiting the fate of the upcoming IPL 2020, which has also been postponed until April 15. Roger Federer’s Laver Cup, scheduled for September, will now clash with the Roland Garros after the French Open had to be shifted from May due to the coronavirus outbreak.
