Jamie Vardy has given a glimpse of how he’s biding his time during the coronavirus lockdown thanks to some Instagram snaps from wife Rebekah in the garden.

Like the rest of the UK, the Leicester striker is away from the office at the minute, with all football postponed for the time being.

The ex-England international will no doubt have a tailored training plan to stick to, especially with the possibility of a place in the Champions League still a genuine possibility if the Premier League does return.

A lot of footballers have shown they are spending their time in quarantine playing FIFA or practising their golf skills at home.

Vardy is also is also keeping busy in his down time - by sprucing up his garden and getting his ‘fingers green’.

Rebekah posted a number of Instagram stories of her 33-year-old hubby pottering around the backyard of their £2.5m Lincolnshire home.

He told the camera: “Going green - planting my own stuff aren’t I.”

Rebekah also showed Vardy with a watering can and digging up his vegetable patch alongside the caption: “He’s dangerous”.

Vardy is supposedly an avid gardner, growing and rearing a lot of his own produce.

A source told the Sun: “Jamie loves his allotment. He grows his own vegetables and loves spending time on it with the kids.

“They have lots of chickens as well and used to have some Alpacas too.

“It’s not what people might think a Premier League footballer would do in his spare time, but Jamie’s used to doing things differently.”

The Vardy couple have been keeping themselves rather busy during lockdown, with Rebekah cutting her footballer husband’s hair, before joking he was lucky not to lose an ear.

The ex-I’m A Celebrity contestant also donated £10,000 to buy 2,000 sets of scrubs for medics in Leicestershire as they continue to work on the frontline against Covid-19.
