Arsenal coach and Chelsea player test positive for Covid-19

The Premier League will hold an emergency meeting today following Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta and Chelsea player Callum Hudson-Odoi testing positive for Covid-19.

Players from both teams are currently self-isolating - and Arsenal’s match against Brighton this Saturday has been postponed.

Mr Hudson-Odoi tweeted an update on his condition and thanked all the fans for their support. He said: "I had the virus for the last couple of days which I've recovered from. I'm following the health guidelines and self-isolating myself from everybody for the week. I hope to see everybody soon."

Sports Writer Darren Lewis thinks the Premier League will cancel the remaining games of the season, he said: “I think they will come to the right decision. Leading figures in the game are very openly saying they don’t feel matches should take place this weekend and for the foreseeable future.”

Elsewhere, overnight the Australian Grand Prix was scrapped just hours before the cars were due on the track.

No one really knows the extent of what we are dealing with

Lewis Hamilton posted on Twitter: “Sadly, this is the right decision. No one wants this, we all want to get in our cars and get racing, but we have to be realistic and we must out the health and safety first.”
