A number of first team players and former captain Lucas Radebe joined forces in a coronavirus video published on the club's social medial channels this afternoon.

Current skipper Liam Cooper began the video by paying tribute to the work of the National Health Service during the pandemic.

He said: "From everybody at Leeds United, we hope everyone is staying safe and following the government guidelines to protect the NHS. The work the NHS are doing at the moment is unbelievable, we can't thank you guys enough. Stay safe everybody and take care."
