Canadian sports legends ranging from Wayne Gretzky to Hockey Hall of Famer Hayley Wickenheiser are among a list of athletes participating in a project to recognize and celebrate health care workers for their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 `The Real Heroes Project'' involves 15 sports leagues, including Major League Baseball, the National Football League, National Basketball Association, National Hockey League and Major League Soccer.  Public service announcements will debut Wednesday.

Athletes will share a personal thank you message on social media and will cover their name on their jerseys or uniforms and replace it with the name of the health care worker they are honouring.

A Texas restaurant owner said a customer who came in with his family on the day the dining area reopened insisted on doubling his bill and left a $1,300 tip.

David Fernandez, owner of Autin eatery Frog & The Bull, said the restaurant's dining area was re-opened Friday when the coronavirus stay-at-home order was eased, and a customer who came in that day with his family racked up a $337 bill.

The man signed his receipt with a message for the eatery: "Good luck."
