Victoria Beckham has broken her social media silence, telling her Instagram fans to stay safe from amid the coronavirus pandemic. "Everything feels strange and uncertain with COVID-19," she wrote. "My thoughts have been with you all – my community and your loved ones." Her message of support comes shortly after her husband David was personally affected by the pandemic, having invited his family to Miami to watch his football team, Inter Miami CF, take on his former team LA Galaxy in their opening game of the season. However, due to the impact of COVID-19, football matches have been suspended for 30 days, meaning that the game couldn't go ahead.
