Little Leo's lockdown blues . . .

Here's a little something to make you smile . . .

Mini Mensa member Leo Gomez-Franqueira, who has just turned six, has composed his own ode to the coronavirus lockdown.

Dad Ian Peterson said: "We feel very proud of his achievement. He is very thoughtful and his vision of the pandemic brings hope and cheers up everyone who watches the video.

"He loves to clap every Thursday at 8pm to support and cheer the heroes of this pandemic who are helping so much. Even he is concerned about the situation, he is wishing to go back to school with his friends."

Leo, who lives in London, joined Mensa in 2016 when he was just two and a half. He started playing the piano and the cello before he turned three, and Ian said he loves music. Leo composed his first song as he knew that his music teacher had done an improvisation about coronavirus with her cello.
