Hibs star Stephane Omeonga has given fans a reason to smile during lockdown – by showing off his dance moves to celebrate his birthday.
The midfielder, on loan from Genoa, has just turned 24, but the Covid-19 pandemic has forced him and many others to enjoy a more low-key celebration than normal.
The UK is currently in lockdown because of the fast-spreading disease, with people only able to leave their homes for essential shopping and one form of exercise per day.
It is an extremely tough time for all at the moment, and it’s fair to say a lot of people have been struggling for things to do.
Social distancing is an absolutely crucial practice in these times though, and lockdown will lift sooner rather than later if everyone sticks to the rules.

Hibs ace Omeonga may be confined to the house like everybody else, but he did try to bring a smile to supporters’ faces on Sunday, releasing a video clip of him dancing in the bathroom to Candy by Cameo.
The Belgian admitted lockdown is ‘driving me crazy’, but then called out teammates Martin Boyle, Stephen Mallan and Marc McNulty to try and better him – meaning, hopefully, some potentially entertaining posts to come.
Omeonga’s moves went down a treat on Twitter:
