This is the adorable video of a granddad playing chess with his grandson over FaceTime while they’re both in self-isolation.

Seven-year-old Ruben set up the game with granddad Mick Phillips, 71, as a way of staying in touch since the coronavirus outbreak.

The video, taken by Chris Phillips, 42, Ruben’s dad and Mick’s son, shows the pair playing on of their favourite past times.

This video was filmed on March 24 in Staffordshire.
