Amid fears of the fast-spreading coronavirus all over the world, England's Premier League has now officially made a decision on what it will do going forward.
After calling an emergency meeting on Friday, officials from the Premier League have announced that its matches will be suspended until early 3 April month.
It was confirmed in the early hours of Friday morning that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta had tested positive for Covid-19, as had Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, forcing the EPL to take action. The suspension has now been confirmed by the Premier League.
EPL chief executive Richard Masters said in a statement that "above all, we wish Mikel Arteta and Callum Hudson-Odoi speedy recoveries, and everyone else affected by COVID-19.
"In this unprecedented situation, we are working closely with our clubs, Government, The FA and EFL, and can reassure everyone the health and welfare of players, staff and supporters are our priority."
It was also announced on Friday that the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League matches scheduled for next week will not go ahead.
In following LaLiga and Serie A, Ligue 1 matches have also been suspended until further notice, while the Bundesliga will have its fixtures played behind closed doors this weekend, and be suspended thereafter.
