REAL MADRID star Brahim Diaz has admitted he has become quite the pro at Fortnite after being forced to say indoors in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
With the number of cases in the United Kingdom rising as well as the number of deaths being over 240 at this time, people are having no choice but to find things to keep them occupied at home.

Diaz spoke to the Sports&Life&Home podcast, which Spanish outlet Marca have reported on.
They quote him as saying about his Fortnite playing: "I train, I play with my family and then I have my free time, which nobody can take away from me.
"I play Fortnite, and I have become a pro, because, basically I have never played it so much."
Diaz is fit and healthy in quarantine at the moment, as are the entire Los Blancos squad, as they enter the second week of isolation.
It comes after a member of the club's basketball team tested positive for coronavirus.
Marouane Fellaini has been hospitalised after testing positive for coronavirus, after the sad news that former Real Madrid president Lorenzo Sanz passed away after he too was diagnosed with the virus.
The Premier League has been suspended until at least April 30 and the entire sporting calendar decimated.
Spain has extended its state of emergency another 15 days after deaths from the killer bug soared.
Pubs, restaurants, leisure centres, gyms, clubs all closed to try to minimise the risk of the spread.
There are also many athletes calling for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics to be called off and postponed until next year.
Real's Diaz, along with his Madrid team-mates each have their own workout plans drawn up for them by fitness coach Gregory Dupont.
Diaz continued to tell the Sport&Life&Home podcast: ''From the club, they ask us to continue training, to continue preparing physically and mentally to be strong, and they hope this will resolved quickly.''
He might have become somewhat a phenomenon of the online game Fortnite, but he has struggled to make a regular impression the pitch this season, playing just 170 minutes across all competitions.
The 20-year-old Spaniard might find the inspiration he needs during this difficult period.
Real have been through a rather tough time not just with the club lockdown and the sad death of Sanz, but they have also faced harsh criticism after Luka Jovic broke isolation rules sparking fury.
With 11 games still to be played in La Liga, Madrid also remain in the hunt for the title.
They sit behind leaders Barcelona but trail by just two points.
