Coronavirus latest: What sport still went ahead on March 31?

The PA news agency takes a look at some of the action which went ahead on Tuesday.

As the Coronavirus continues to put sport on hold, only a handful of events are still taking place around the world.

Here, the PA news agency takes a look at some of the action which went ahead on Tuesday.

Horse Racing

While there may be no action in the United Kingdom or now Ireland, where meetings had carried on behind closed doors, racing does continue in the United States.

Will Rogers Downs in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Fonner Park at Grand Island, Nebraska and the Cal-Expo Harness in Scaramento, California saw cards on the dirt tracks.

Basketball

As well as the National League in mountainous, landlocked Central Asia nation Tajikistan, basketball games continue to be played in Taiwan's SBL.

Pauian saw off Taiwan Beer 94-75 to sit in second place after a fourth successive win.

Bottom club Jeoutai, though, went down 77-89 at home to Bank of Taiwan, who snapped a six-match losing streak.

Volleyball
