The 2020 European Athletics Championships in Paris have been cancelled amid the coronavirus crisis.
The event was due to be staged at the French capital’s Charlety Stadium from 25-30 August.
Great Britain topped the medal table at the 2018 championships in Berlin.
“We had hoped in these troubled times to offer European athletes a major event to aim for at the end of this summer,” said European Athletics interim president Dobromir Karamarinov.
“The health and safety of all athletics’ stakeholders – including athletes, fans, officials, partners and everyone connected with the sport – is paramount.” (Text and photo courtesy BBC)
