Football: Man City’s Phil Foden breaks social distancing rules to play at beach

MANCHESTER (REUTERS) – Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden has become the latest English Premier League player to breach social distancing guidelines amid the Covid-19 pandemic, after he was pictured having a kickabout at Formby beach on Merseyside.

The British media reported on Tuesday (June 2) that the 20-year-old played football with members of the public and posed for photographs, with the club set to speak to Foden to remind him of his responsibilities and to strictly follow government guidelines.

In April, City's Kyle Walker was pulled up by the club after he breached Britain's lockdown rules by hosting a party.

Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White also broke lockdown rules last month when he attended a party in London, while Everton's Moise Kean hosted a house party in April.
