German high flying rules prohibited players from celebrating with teammates during the coronavirus pandemic.

But Thuram sought to peck his colleague on the cheek after scoring his team’s second goal against Frankfurt.

All contact outside of the challenges is prohibited – and submarines have even been set up two meters apart.

Thuram, 22, the son of French legend Lilian, will not be punished by Bundesliga bosses after it has been confirmed that they will take no action against players who flout the guidelines.

Erling Haaland, the star of Borussia Dortmund, has shown that it is possible to celebrate a goal while respecting the rules of social distancing.

He danced around the corner with his teammates two meters apart after successfully scoring Schalke 4-0.

But surprisingly, Thuram was not the only player to violate the social distancing measures.

Boyata was shown earlier when approaching teammate Marko Grujic in his 3-0 victory over Hoffenheim.

Regular tests are compulsory for each player and staff member of the 18 Bundesliga clubs.

In addition to solo celebrations, league leaders have also banned mascots, team photos and handshakes.

All matches take place in camera, which means that no fans and essential staff are allowed to attend the matches.

Although the measures helped replay football, many wondered if it was worth it given the platitude of the action.

Many soccer fans on social media have compared live action to “training sessions.”

Crystal Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt tweeted, “Watching this Dortmund Schalke match just isn’t the same without the energy of the fans out of sync. “

And former Arsenal and Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas also stressed “fan power”.
