Pin the donkey and Twister might not be what you would expect a footballer to get up to on their birthday.  

But for Tottenham star Dele Alli, he had to make do with what he had in his house as he celebrated turning 24-years-old.

The English midfielder shared what he got up to with his 7million followers on Instagram, looking slightly underwhelmed with how he spent his day in isolation.

When he would normally be celebrating the day with friends and family, Alli is instead seen pictured having a barbecue, playing pin the donkey and Twister all by himself.

He does get into the spirit of the big day though wearing a birthday hat and having a drank.  

Along with the picture he put up a caption saying ‘Isolation birthday #stayhome.’   

 Premier League football is currently on lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic and is not set to resume until April 30 at the earliest though this is likely to be pushed back.

Currently in the United Kingdom there have been over 78,000 reported cases with more than 9,000 deaths.

Speaking about the lockdown Alli said:  ‘To be honest, it’s been very boring! I’ve just been sticking to the rules, trying to stay fit and healthy, trying not to get too bored,’ he explained.

‘I’m lucky because I love PlayStation so I get a lot of that in. So I’ve just been waking up, doing the gym sessions and team training.

 ‘I do a bit of that, do a bit by myself in the afternoon with gym sessions which are a bit different to what the teams needs and then it’s just trying to eat right, trying to keep active and socialise with friends and family via social media

Alli also praised the NHS saying: ‘What they are doing is amazing and, as the general public, we can’t thank them enough for what they are doing – it’s amazing to see,’ said the Tottenham midfielder.

‘We look at what they are doing and we appreciate how amazing it is.’
