What is there to think about? It was obvious that this would happen, and more sports cancellations are inevitable. Imagine the publicity if Coronavirus was spread by means of a major sporting event, the press would be all over why the authorities allowed the event to go ahead.

Prevention is always better than a cure.

That's good to hear, no coronavirus testing at Arsenal following the postponement of the Man City game.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Aintree Festival got postponed. I was surprised that Cheltenham Festival went ahead.

At the moment, I can't see the Euros going ahead at all.
