LEGENDARY athletes Brian Lara, Dwight Yorke and Russell Latapy took time on Thursday to appreciate the frontline workers in TT for their service during the coronavirus pandemic.

We know that this virus and this pandemic is being spread rapidly in and around our country. I just want to reach out to everybody who has been putting themselves at risk to save others and I just want to applaud you for all the good work that you have done.”
