Alderweireld donating tablets to hospitals to help sick stay in contact with loved ones

Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld is donating “dozens” of electronic tablets to hospitals to help sick people keep in contact with family and friends.

The 31-year-old, who recommitted his future to Spurs earlier this season, wants to help people feel less alone during the coronavirus pandemic and while football is postponed for the foreseeable future.

In a video address on his personal twitter page, the Belgium centre-back said: “I hope everyone is following the government measures to stop the further thread of coronavirus.

“This virus creates many needs, especially the lack of person contact.

“People that are sick can’t see their friends or family, so my plan is to buy dozens of tablets to give to hospitals and nursery homes, so people can video chat with their loved ones and friends, to get through this tough period.

“In the next days and weeks, I’m trying to get those tablets to places where they can help. I hope anyone that can spare, or give, or do something to help a little bit the people in need, to see family and friends, because it will help a lot. We stay together strong.”
