NEWCASTLE players have given a rundown of their routines after being sent home during the coronaviru­s shutdown.

But they’ve been warned by Steve Bruce and his staff that the break is not a holiday.

Miguel Almiron is playing games, including Monopoly and Uno, to keep busy in between his fitness programme on his treadmill.

Fabian Schar has returned to his native Switzerlan­d and has been helping his mum out with her gardening, while

Karl Darlow recently bought a new bike so is exploring rural Northumber­land.

Skipper Jamaal Lascelles has been gaming, sharpening up his Call of Duty: Warzone skills.

Keeper Rob Elliot, meanwhile, has taken up teaching his kids.

He said: “We do some reading, writing, drawing, whatever we can, then a Disney film before lunch.

“In the afternoon we keep the kids active by playing games and running around before tea, and then get them ready for bath and bed.

“Then we try to stay awake past 8.30pm and wonder how the amazing teachers and nursery staff do it!”

“I’m running through Jesmond Dene and making the most of what I can,” he said. “It’s a pretty important window for my rehabilita­tion.” Jonjo Shelvey has been working on his golf swing but Federico Fernandez says the club have hammered home a key message to the players.

He said: “We have to do some fitness work – they’ve told us pretty clearly that it’s no holiday. “We need to keep working, so I’ve tried to do that at home or in the garden.”
