Professional tennis player Kevin Krawietz, who won a Grand Slam men's doubles title last year, has been working at the local branch of Lidl in his home municipality of Brunnthal outside Munich to help his community during the coronavirus crisis, as seen in footage from Thursday.
The 28-year-old German, who is ranked No. 13 with Andreas Mies, first talked about an idea of working in a supermarket... Еще as «a joke» but later decided to step in.
«Why shouldn't we take a job like this, stocking shelves in our free time, we can only do two hours of sports a day, and there isn't too much going on anyway,» Kevin said on Thursday.
«Once I was a security guard. Such situations are sometimes tough logically when you have to tell everyone 'please take a shopping cart,» Kevin shared his experience of working a part-time job.
The tennis pro stressed that he has been enjoying his new experience and his colleagues.
As of Friday, Germany has 163,009 confirmed COVID-19 cases and at least 6,623 people have died with the virus.
