All Sporting Activities Suspended In Italy As Corona Virus Spreads

All sport in Italy has been suspended until at least 3 April because of coronavirus, the country's prime minister Giuseppe Conte has announced.
This includes Serie A but not Italian clubs or national teams participating in international competitions.
Serie A - Italy's top flight - had already said all games would be played behind closed doors until 3 April.
Conte extended a series of strict quarantine measures, including a ban on public gatherings, to all of Italy.
Earlier, Italy's Olympic committee (CONI) recommended the move to suspend all sport at all levels after hosting a special meeting of sporting federations on Monday.
Italy has been the European country worst hit by coronavirus so far, with over 9,000 confirmed cases and more than 450 deaths.
