Football and Six Nations are just two of the sports that have seen events postponed or canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak. The virus, which originated in Wuhan, has spread across Asia and now into continental Europe, with thousands of positive virus tests being reported.

This led to several sporting events being canceled or postponed by government agencies that wanted to take all possible public health measures.

But the 2020 sporting calendar has already been shaken, including the World Indoor Athletics Championship in Nanjing, China, and has been postponed to 2021 in a year in which athletes aim to peak physical fitness for the Olympics.

The F1 calendar has also been affected, with the Chinese Grand Prix being postponed at the moment, with no new date set yet.

Last week, there was also a major spurt in northern Italy, leading to several Serie A games being postponed and the potential title decision this weekend between Inter Milan and Juventus being played behind closed doors.
