Staying on the grind! The sailors are at home but they are still training. INEOS Team UK grinder Graeme Spence shows how he stays on top of his fitness regime in the lockdown.

Using a homemade grinding machine made from two old $15 scrapyard bikes, a bike trainer, an old computer desk and a pallet finished off with two badminton racket grips for handles, INEOS Team UK grinder Graeme Spence, stays fit without having to go to the team base or gym. How are you keeping active at home? #StayHomeSaveLives
