Rory McIlroy, Padraig Harrington and Shane Lowry are among the golfers to feature in a video released by the European Tour to thank essential workers, including those in the healthcare sector and other key areas, for their efforts during the coronavirus pandemic.

The European Tour published the clip in which players like Jon Rahm and Justin Rose as well as the major-winning Irish trio of Lowry, Harrington and McIlroy praise the efforts of healthcare staff and other key workers.

They also urge fans to follow the advice of the World Health Organization and their respective governments.

In the clip, McIlroy begins by saying: "This is a little message for those of you who haven't realised it yet. I am not your hero."

2020 Ryder Cup Europe captain Harrington says, "Your heroes are the same as our heroes", before Lowry adds that "our heroes are all the essential workers that we all take for granted."
