The COVID-19 outbreak has disturbed the sporting calendar all over the world.

With sporting action coming to a halt across the globe due to the coronavirus pandemic, many athletes have been forced to stay at home and away from sports. In these times, athletes are doing their bit – be it donating to charities or urging people to stay at home during the ongoing crisis.

Former India kabaddi captain Ajay Thakur is still in action, albeit off the kabaddi mat. Thakur, who is a DSP with the Himachal Pradesh police, is on the frontlines patrolling localities in Bilaspur and urging citizens to stay at home. The Padma Shri and Arjuna Awardee shared posts of himself on duty on his Instagram account and fans were quick to appreciate his service.
