British Para-taekwondo athlete Matt Bush has been working to keep the food supply running in his hometown of St Clears during the coronavirus pandemic - and training from home when the opportunity allows.

Following the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics, Bush has been dedicating more of his time to working for the family business in south-west Wales.

"It's just a small food business who provide staples like eggs, butter and cheese, mainly to corner shops and local family shops," he told the ParalympicsGB website.

"I try to fit working for the business in around my training normally, but now I’m not able to train I wanted to make sure I was doing something to help combat the current situation.

"The business has become very busy as a lot of people are buying from these local stores, so I’ve been working five days a week to make sure no shelves go unstocked.

"We’re not saving lives and we’re just providing food, but I just feel like it’s nice to know that you’re doing something to help and contribute, no matter how small it is."

Bush continues to train in his spare time, but must do so at home because non-essential travel is currently banned in United Kingdom in an attempt to curb the spread of coronavirus.

There have been more than 29,400 COVID-19 deaths in the UK - the second-highest figure in the world, behind the United States.

Bush was successful at last year's Para-Taekwondo World Championships in Antalya in Turkey, becoming Britain's first male world champion in the sport.
