Cristiano Ronaldo is taking active measures to protect his family from the coronavirus.

The Juventus ace posted a video of himself on Instagram showing his children how to keep their hands clean to fight the pandemic.

The Portugal international has been consistently reminding his social media followers to follow World Health Organisation guidance on minimising the risk of exposure to Covid-19.

The first thing health authorities have advised is frequent hand washing with soap and water or an alcohol-based rub and Ronaldo is doing his part to make sure his kids know what to do.

With three of them sitting in high chairs, Ronaldo squirted hand sanitiser in their hands and instructed them to rub it in before giving them a thumbs up after a job well done.

Three of Ronaldo’s Juventus team-mates have tested positive for the virus in recent weeks, with Paulo Dybala the latest to catch it after Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi.

Several Juventus players have been allowed to return to their home countries to avoid contracting coronavirus.

While the pair had already been in isolation for two weeks, they were tested on Friday and will be quarantined until they are clear.

Italy is in a nationwide lockdown in an effort to halt the spread of Covid-19, which is being enforced in some areas by the military.
