Why are footballers hugging, kissing and breathing into each other’s faces?

Mr M has been watching sport on tv this weekend. Every time I enter the room, if a goal has been scored, the screen is full of these guys hugging, kissing, high-fiving and generally congratulating each other. What’s going on ? Are they exempt from the Covid rules?

I think like our football or hockey, that they are in a bubble with their team, have tests every day or every other day. If one tests positive, the whole team is in quarantine.

Don't worry! The "gals" also do it here, whether it's netball, cricket, or football, but only when they've got something to celebrate which sometimes is not too often! tchgrin
