Winger takes to Twitter with warning.

Former Manchester United winger Ashley Young, now with Inter Milan, has taken to Twitter to offer his advice on steering clear of coronavirus.

With Italy currently suffering in the grip of the pandemic, Young outlined a series of measures those of us in the United Kingdom need to follow.

He opened with: "Hi everyone, just wanted to share my thoughts given I'm currently living in Italy, the epicentre of the virus."

The 34-year-old went on to detail how supermarkets pose the biggest threat to catching the virus, and explained the safest methods of buying and paying for food.

Young advised wearing masks or scarves and gloves and explained what to do if you need to get into a lift – "stand on opposite sides and face the wall – don't breathe outwards towards that stranger".

Crucially, the former Watford, Aston Villa and England wideman added: "This may sound harsh but treat everybody that's not in your household as if they have the virus, you just don't know!!!"

He ended by saying: "Most importantly, just stay safe! This is what we are doing here, it's not an overreaction, it's staying safe.

"And just remember others should be looking at you in this way as well. It's not horrible, it's a way of keeping your distance to ultimately help save lives."
