As sports events get cancelled, British rugby commentator Nick Heath is delivering some much-needed laughs with his #LifeCommentary videos.

Heath delivers parody sports commentary over videos of mundane things like people crossing the road, dogs running in a park and women pushing strollers.

He began making the videos to entertain himself in a time where there's no sport to cover.

"It's about getting out there and giving people a sense of a sporting occasion", he tells Kathryn Ryan.

"For me, and a lot of sports fans, it's not necessarily just about the action that's happening out on the field, it's about the atmosphere, the sound and the cadence of sport and applying a little bit of that to the most banal circumstances... [My life commentary] has almost scratched that sporting itch for a few people."
