French half-marathon champion Yosi Goasdoue has found a way of continuing his training during the coronavirus pandemic .

Last month, when it became clear Europe was going into an extended period of lockdown, Goasdoue bought a treadmill for his home. However, the machine turned out to be too big for his front door and Goasdoue decided to move to a chateau in central France to continue his training, according to France 3 Centre-Val de Loire.

Goasdoue has taken up a room at the Chateau de la Bourdaisiere, in Montlouis-sur-Loire, central France.

According to the report, he is also helping out with odd jobs at the chateau. "As the hotel manager is confined to his home, I take messages and do whatever is necessary," Goasdoue was quoted as saying.
