Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld has promised to supply "dozens" of tablet computers to hospitals and nursing homes amid the COVID-19 crisis.


The Belgium defender is keen on helping people suffering from the virus, which has brought the world to a halt, to communicate with their families and friends by providing them with tablets.


"I hope everyone is following the government measures to stop the further spread of the coronavirus," the Spurs centre-back Alderweireld revealed through a clip on his Twitter account on Sunday.

"The virus creates many needs, especially the lack of personal contact. If people are sick they can't see their friends, they can't see their family.


"So my plan is to buy dozens of tablets to give to the hospitals and nursing homes so people can video chat with their loved ones and their friends to get through this tough period.


"In the next couple of days and weeks I'm trying to get those tablets to the places where they can help."


The 31-year-old posted a clip with a written message that said: "Whoever can help, please help! Together, we can come out of this difficult time stronger than ever. Stay safe everyone."
