Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho and West Ham United boss David Moyes have volunteered to be food delivery drivers to help during the coronavirus lockdown.

Spurs announced on Thursday that Mourinho, 57, will be volunteering his time to make weekly deliveries from the club's training ground to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which is acting as a food distribution hub during the crisis.

"This is a garden at our training centre that grows fresh fruit and vegetables here for the first-team restaurant," Mourinho said in a Twitter video.

"Now this food is being taken to our food food distribution hub at the [Tottenham Hotspur] stadium so it can be given to those most in need in the community.

"From next week I will be volunteering my time to help out in the garden and take this food to the stadium."

Earlier this month, Mourinho apologised for taking a training session while the country is on a government-imposed lockdown during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Spurs boss was photographed taking an outdoor training session at Hadley Common, London with midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, despite government guidelines for people to stay indoors. Defenders Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon were also filmed by passers-by running together through the park.

Moyes has also volunteered as delivery driver and has been helping to bring food to elderly people in a village in Lancashire during the coronavirus lockdown.

Former Manchester United boss Moyes, 56, has been helping out as a fruit-and-veg delivery driver after he answered a call for help in his local village.

"When the coronavirus first hit here, I was in a fruit-and-veg shop in the village," Moyes told reporters. "There was a thing up in the window that drivers were needed. So I volunteered, as my wife was away at the time and I was on my own.

"All I was doing was ­dropping it at the door, knocking and then going away. It was beautiful big boxes of fruit and veg. I thought, 'This is great!' I was really enjoying it. Going back to the shop to get another lot and then filling the car up.

"The boss said, 'Would you mind asking for money?' The bill was about £16.80 for the box of fruit and veg. An older lady gave me a £20 note. She said, 'Here son just keep the change.'

"Another time a similar older lady's bill was £17.60 or so. She gave me £15 and was starting to go into her purse. I said, 'That will do, that is enough.' I got a bit back on the tip on the other one.'"

Earlier this month, West Ham announced that Moyes has taken a 30% pay cut, along with chairman Karen Brady, to help the club through the Premier League hiatus caused by the coronavirus lockdown.

West Ham have also deferred a percentage of their player's salaries during the shutdown.
