Nuns at the San Leandro convent in Seville can be seen playing a quick game of basketball in what looks like a makeshift court.
The now-viral video shows nun in their habits running across the court and passing the ball. One nun dressed in all-white attempts narrowly misses one shot but is successful on her second attempt, and is cheered by other nuns.
Watch the video here:
Nunca pensé que vería a unas monjas de clausura jugando al baloncesto. Hoy he visitado el convento de San Leandro, donde sus monjas han cambiado la elaboración de sus célebres yemas por mascarillas sanitarias. Entre costura y costura, tiros a canasta. #Sevilla #Sevillahoy pic.twitter.com/enf7TyVjCy

As per reports, the nuns are known in Seville for their signature sweets that they have been selling for more than four centuries. However, the production has been halted due to the pandemic. Presently the nuns are making face masks that are being donated.
