West Ham United defender Aaron Cresswell posted an emotional video on Twitter last night to highlight the support of the country for NHS workers.
A campaign was launched to ‘clap for our carers‘, where everyone at 8pm last night would open their front doors and clap for those providing medical support in such difficult times amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The round of applause and cheers soared across the nation and Cresswell captured the moments from his home in London.
Since the COVID-19 disruption, sporting action across the world has come to a halt, with English football suspended until at least April 30.
West Ham currently sit 16th in the Premier League table on 27 points with just nine games left to play, and the battle to avoid the drop was intensifying before football was suspended.
However, these unprecedented times must be approached with caution; health comes first before anything else, and Cresswell’s video last night brought some great reaction on social media:
Big respect to all involved

When this is over remember who the real hero’s in society are, remember what’s important, your family, your friends, your planet and the fellow humans who inhabit with you. This is our chance to change forever for the better, it’s our last chance, please don’t miss it.
