Dan Goodfellow and Olympic diving partner Jack Laugher are keeping in sync while self-isolating in the only way they know how – online gaming.
Wherever they’ve been on diving’s globetrotting circuit in the last 18 months, Goodfellow and Laugher can be found in their hotel room cracking into Call of Duty or World of Warcraft.
It’s headsets rather than handstands for now but Goodfellow feels common interest is bonding the pair as they aim to jointly defend Laugher’s Olympic title in Tokyo next summer.
“Jack and I are chatting every day on the headset at the moment and my brother gets involved too,” said Goodfellow, speaking on behalf of The Official Estate Agent of Team GB Purplebricks.
“We always take our laptops on the road and pretty much a full set-up of mouse, headset, keyboard. We don’t stay in five-star hotels so we just get there and set up as best we can.
