When you're right, you write

Callum Hudson-Odoi: Chelsea winger to face no further action on an allegation of rape, which is a relief. Here is his Twitter post. Do you remember that he was the first Premier League player to test positive for COVID-19? I remember considering suggesting when he got over it, as he would be immune, he should volunteer at a local old people's home. I wish I had now.

Cf. Manchester United and England's Marcus Rashford who, as well as putting his money and time where his mouth is, penned an open letter this week asking the Government to reverse its decision to cease the free school meals scheme - for which nearly 1.3 million children are eligible - outside of school term time. (It's only a detail in the scheme of things, but that letter is a lovely piece of writing.)
