Watford's game against Chelsea this weekend will be preceded by a moment's applause to thank the NHS and key workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

Football, cricket and rugby union are among the sports that will pay tribute to those workers who have kept the country going throughout the outbreak of Covid-19.

As part of the 'Thank You Together' initiative, all of this weekend's Premier League and English Football League matches will join in with the gesture.

Teams are already honouring the NHS in Premier League matches with a blue NHS heart on the front of players' shirts.

They have also previously paid tribute to those who have been affected by the virus with a minute's silence in the first game back following the restart.

Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said: "The Premier League will support the NHS and its moment of thanks to recognise the efforts of the health workers, key workers and all those who have shown kindness and care to others during these months."
