What we’ve loved in sport: Marcus Rashford surprises two Manchester United fans, Premier League players to r thumbnail

Another week has gone by without football due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Football in England has been suspended indefinitely with a return date still unclear.
But there have still been some memorable moments from the world of sport over the past week.
Below, talkSPORT.com has picked out seven of the best…
Jamie Mackie working out with his daughter
Without training or playing matches, people might have been wondering what footballers are doing with their time.
Most have been playing video games, exercising and spending time with their loved ones.
But no one could have foreseen what Oxford United forward Mackie has been up to…
On Thursday, Mackie’s teammate John Mousinho tweeted a video of the 34-year-old and his daughter hilariously doing a rendition of Pamela Pupkin’s Quarantine Workout in a TikTok clip.

Mackie is seen working out in tight shorts and a vest with a pink headband – and seems to be loving it!
Premier League stars joined forces to announce the launch of #PlayersTogther, a fund which is set to raise millions of pounds for the National Health Service.
Players from all 20 top-flight clubs in England tweeted a picture of a statement with the caption ‘#PlayersTogether’ on Wednesday evening as they announced the initiative, which was spearheaded by Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.
They have partnered with NHS Charities Together (NHSCT) – the national umbrella organisation for over 150 registered NHS charities – to ensure they can ‘distribute money to where it’s needed most’.
Fair play to Henderson and the rest of the Premier League’s players.

Trick shot skills from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba
Ibrahimovic and Pogba remain close friends following their time together at Manchester United.
Both players arrived at Old Trafford in the 2016 summer transfer window and helped the club win the League Cup and Europa League in their debut seasons with the club.
Ibrahimovic, now at AC Milan, challenged Pogba to better his trick shot over the weekend – and some fans think the Frenchman did.

Harry Maguire supplying food packages to the elderly in his hometown
It has been a whirlwind few years for Maguire.
From playing in the Championship with Hull, to becoming a regular England starter and Manchester United captain.
And he clearly hasn’t forgotten his roots.
Maguire is supplying food packages to the elderly in his hometown of Mosborough.
The 27-year-old approached Herrings Top Shop in Mosborough with his father with the idea to help those aged 70 and over – or their carers – in the local area.

    Harry Maguire is helping people in his hometown 

He said: “I am very proud of my Mosborough roots – it’s where I grew up and where my family still live. I come back to visit everyone as much as I can.
“There’s always been a real sense of community in the area which is more important than ever at the moment. In times like these you think a lot about your loved ones and those that are more elderly.
“My family and I hope that this provides a small comfort to people who might be struggling.”
Freddie Flintoff joining talkSPORT
On Wednesday, it was announced that England cricket legend Freddie Flintoff will be joining the Sports Breakfast team alongside Laura Woods from the beginning of this week.
Freddie will be on air every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday with Laura and Scotland hero Ally McCoist.
“I’ve been a talkSPORT listener for years and the team are fantastic,” said Freddie.
“I’m really looking forward to joining the breakfast line-up with the brilliant Laura Woods and Ally McCoist Monday to Wednesday.
“Our message to the listeners is: stay in, stay safe and listen to talkSPORT.”

Marcus Rashford chatting to Manchester United fans during lockdown
Rashford has already shown his class during the coronavirus outbreak.
The Manchester United forward, alongside charity FareShare, has helped raise £20million to provide food for schoolchildren.
The 21-year-old has also agreed, along with the rest of the United squad, to make a sizeable group donation to Manchester hospitals.
And on Saturday, Rashford took time out of his day to chat to two Manchester United fans, a young one and an elderly supporter, who were both equally shocked.
He even recognised the young fan!
Rashford’s kindness knows no bounds.

The funny story of Sir Stirling Moss getting stopped by a police officer
Moss died after losing his long-term battle with illness at the age of 90 on Sunday.
Despite never managing to win a World Championship, he was held in high regard by those in motorsport.
And Moss had a sense of humour, too, as F1 pundit and former driver Tony Jardine revealed a funny encounter with a police officer.
He told talkSPORT: “There’s a classic story of policemen stopping people and saying ‘who do you think you are, Lewis Hamilton?’

RIP to the legend Sterling Moss 🙏
✅ 500+ races✅ 200+ wins
Incredible bravery showed in every race during a dangerous era for motorsport.
One of the true greats. 🏎 pic.twitter.com/vk3rhQaG2u

“Well when he [Moss] came to the Aintree racetrack, he was going through the Mersey tunnel and got done for speeding by one of the Mersey police.
“The policeman leaned in afterwards and said ‘who do you think you are, Stirling Moss?’ And he said ‘well, I am’… but it didn’t get him off the £10 fine!”
