World Cup victor Pogba, who had his 27th birthday on Sunday, wrote: "It's my birthday and I'm always grateful that me, my family and friends are healthy".

Pogba, who turned 27 on Sunday, has promised to double the amount raised if he reaches his fund target of £27,000.

Posting on Instagram, the World Cup victor said: "It's my birthday and I'm always grateful that me, my family and friends are healthy".

"Nonetheless, not everybody is in good health right now". The coronavirus pandemic is affecting the health and lives of many, including children.

"The impact of a large-scale outbreak, especially on poor and vulnerable children, can be enormous", Pogba wrote.

"UNICEF is helping to prevent the spread of the coronavirus by providing vital medical supplies, consulting with communities, and implementing prevention campaigns".

BBC stated the proceeds from the fundraising would be used to buy disposable gloves, surgical masks and vented goggles for health workers.

Pogba was on the list of athletes who were thanked by the head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, for their efforts in combating the spread of the coronavirus.

Sport has been dramatically affected by the disease, with football suspended in all of Europe's leading countries and other major events postponed or cancelled. Any amount will be welcome to help fight against COVID19.
