One of the people who may never forget the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic is Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Dele Ali. The pandemic which has forced government authorities in most countries in the world to declare a lockdown also forced the player to celebrate his 24th birthday in isolation.
The Nigerian-born England National team player turned 24 on Saturday, April 11, 2020. Despite the fact that his birthday fell in a weekend, Easter weekend for that matter, he could not do much due to the coronavirus lockdown in the United Kingdom which was declared to contain the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
The best Dele Alli could do was to take to his Instagram account to share a collage of pictures showing how he spent his birthday in total isolation, probably with only the person behind the camera.
In the collage of pictures the Tottenham star shared, he could be seen that the footballer got himself involved in a variety of activities that could make him feel like he was celebrating his birthday.
In the caption, the 24-year-old football star wrote: “Isolation birthday #stayhome”.
Unbreakable Dele Alli
The person behind the camera is not the British model Ruby Mae who the Tottenham footballer started dating in 2016. Ruby Mae, 25, and Dele were almost a perfect couple who were everywhere together until late 2019 when the news broke that they are no longer together.
Rumour has it that Dele Alli decided to walk away from the relationship in order to enjoy being single again. Despite how Ruby Mae reportedly tried to make the relationship work, Dele Alli was not ready to go back to her.
He has reportedly started dating another British damsel Megan Barton Hanson. Reports have it that he was spotted exchanging contact with the damsel at a night club shortly after he broke up with Ruby Mae.
Before this dream Life
Dele was born as the result of a one night stand between his Nigerian Father Kehinde Alli and his English mother Denise. Dele has lived in Nigeria for two years with his father before he returned to England.
His mother could not take care of him due to her drinking problems and she had to hand him over to another family so that he could be able to fulfil his dream of being a football star.
Fortunately for him, Dele has been living his dream in Tottenham Hotspur where he has been playing professional football since 2015. He has scored 50 times in 153 appearances for the Premier League side.
