Wales rugby centre Jamie Roberts lets front-line doctor use his flat during crisis
Wales rugby star Jamie Roberts has allowed a front-line doctor to live in his flat in Cardiff to help fight the battle against the coronavirus crisis.
The 33 year-old centre stays in the flat when he's back in the City but usually rents out the property as a holiday let.
And Roberts has remained in South Africa with Stormers during the outbreak.
He told BBC Radio Wales Sport: "I managed to get an A&E doctor in there as of Friday, someone who's working on the front line with the NHS in Cardiff.
"There's going to be a lot of NHS workers out there who won't want to be going from hospital to family and putting their families at risk and so they're going to need accommodation.
"So I guess anyone out there who has property which is empty; I'm sure there are plenty with Airbnb cancellations.
"So I guess it's about encouraging people to try and do the same as well. The NHS needs all the help it can get in these times."
