Victoria Beckham has shared a powerful Mother's Day post on Instagram in which she pays tribute to her mum and those with family members working tirelessly for the NHS amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The designer spoke of the challenges that many of us face of not being able to see our loved ones after Prime Minister Boris Johnson advised that the over-70s self isolate and we all avoid non-essential social interactions.

He has since urged the UK not to visit loved ones today to prevent accelerating the spread.

Sharing a picture of herself with her mother Jackie, and four more of herself with each of her children - Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper - the former Spice Girl wrote the message: "Today we celebrate a Mother's Day like no other in the experience of our generation. So many of us won't be able to see our mums today.

"Most of us will be sending them virtual love and gratitude, while thinking especially of the families with those on the frontlines taking care of others. We will all continue to be kind and resilient. Sending love to everyone today from us all."

Victoria has also used social media to support a campaign which encourages the nation to show their appreciation and love for the NHS, who are currently working around the clock to save lives during this unprecedented crisis.

Non-profit organisation Clap For Our Cares - which reaches out to NHS workers and the wider community - asks the public to clap for NHS workers on March 26 at 8pm from the windows of their homes.

Last week, husband David Beckham took to Instagram to reveal he was following social distancing measures for Victoria and their children.
