Sports ceased to exist because of the world hunkered down during the coronavirus quarantine.
Each and every sporting event has been canceled. All the die-hard sports fans were suddenly cut off from the daily commentary, recaps, and games they love so much. Not only that, but even pro athletes are also self-isolating at the moment.
People around the world have been inventing their own games and other unique ways to exercise during self-isolation. Here are some of the creative games they’ve found.
