Commonwealth Games England (CGE) has unveiled a campaign video documenting the experience of athletes during the coronavirus-enforced lockdown in the country.

The "Living Through History" video highlights how athletes have adapted amid the coronavirus pandemic, which decimated the worldwide sporting calendar and forced competitors to train from their home for several months.

Narrated by CGE President and Olympic heptathlon gold medallist Denise Lewis, the video includes clips of athletes' methods of home training and documents how they have remained focused on success at their home Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in 2022.

It involves 40 athletes and showcases all 19 sports on the Birmingham 2022 programme.

"It is clear that there will be more challenges ahead for the nation and for our athletes, but as this film emphasises, sport can help us through difficult days," CGE said.

"It has the power to unite communities into one team.

"Let's stay strong, Team England."

The United Kingdom has reported more than 434,000 cases of COVID-19 and nearly 42,000 deaths.

Measures imposed by the British Government to combat the spread of coronavirus have sparked concern over the future of sports clubs and centres in England.
