A number of sporting events have been affected by the coronavirus outbreak, which originated from China and has claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands.

In a bid to contain its spread, major events in a range of sports across the world have been moved or cancelled.

All five of Europe's major football leagues were indefinitely postponed, with Ligue 1 cancelling their season but others tentatively beginning to return in June.

Euro 2020 and the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo are other high-profile casualties.
