In the video, the singer said: ‘This is Rod Stewart and we’re bunking down here in Florida. We just want to send our regards out to the NHS, the police force, the dustmen and anyone else who is keeping our great country going.

‘We love you, bless you, and thank you for all the tireless hard work. Well done the UK.’ 

The family then started applauding and cheering, with Penny, 49, shouting: ‘Well done the NHS!’ 

Rod penned alongside the video: ‘Our family want to say a huge thank you to everyone working in the NHS as well as to all the health care workers and emergency services that are helping keep Britain’s families safe in these extremely difficult times. #nhs #clapforourcarers.’

The family’s gesture comes after Daniel Craig and the Beckham family led a slew of stars in a nationwide applause in honour of NHS workers on Thursday night.

Rod also has children Sarah Streeter, 57, Kimberly Stewart, 40, Renée Stewart, 27, and Liam Stewart, 25, from previous relationships.  

Meanwhile, Rod was seen taking his bike for a spin in Miami on Thursday as he enjoyed a quick break from quarantine during the coronavirus pandemic. 

The superstar had a successful knee replacement back in January due to an injury he sustained playing football over the years.   

At the end of February, Rod’s wife Penny teased that there is ‘no stopping’ the star after his surgery, as his knee is now ‘better than ever’.

Speaking to The Mirror while sharing an update on Rod’s recovery, Penny said: ‘[Rod has] just done two private shows in Florida and he said, “My knee is better now than it has ever been.” 

‘He said he was running sideways and it has all been sorted. He is like a masterclass of knee replacement and there is no stopping him.’ 

Following his surgery, Rod had been gearing up to head out on tour across America and Australia later this year. 

However, the coronavirus pandemic could affect Rod’s plans to tour, as the outbreak has seen many music gigs and festivals, including Glastonbury, either postponed or cancelled this year.

He also celebrated wife Penny’s 49th birthday, as the couple invited friends over to their house for a dinner party in what was one of their last gatherings for some time now.

Sharing a snap from the party to Instagram on 16 March, Penny wrote: ‘Thanks to all our friends for coming together (at our home in LA) to celebrate my birthday during the most unprecedented time we have known. 

‘Together we stand, together we give thanks and although this might be one of the last get togethers for a while let’s pray we all remain safe and healthy.’ 

Under new lockdown measures, many countries have now restricted movement in a bid to control the spread of COVID-19, as the number of confirmed cases and deaths in relation to the flu-like infection continue to rise. 

In the UK, schools have closed, as well as pubs, bars, restaurants, cafes and gyms. 

People are being told to stay at home and only leave for essentials or to exercise once a day.
