THE SPORTING calendar has been decimated as coronavirus continues to sweep across the globe.
It has led to events being postponed or cancelled entirely as nations around the world try and contain the pandemic.

There are still doubts over whether the Tokyo 202 Olympics will go head as planned – despite officials in the Far East insisting it is business as normal.
But there could be something magical for combat sport fans to look forward to in July with a bumper fortnight of fight action.
Conor McGregor, Anthony Joshua and the mouthwatering trilogy bout between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder could mean it is 14 days of hammering action in summer.
Here, SunSport takes a look at how it could all pan out…
Conor McGregor vs Justin Gaethje – July 11
McGregor is plotting a UFC return on July 11 with developing talks for the Irishman to face Justin Gaethje and “bring the UFC back to life” amid the coronavirus outbreak.
McGregor, 31, won his octagon comeback in January, knocking out Donald Cerrone in 40 seconds as The Notorious vowed to be an active fighter this year.
His strike coach Owen Roddy believes The Notorious can revitalise UFC at just the right time following, hopefully, the containment of coronavirus.
Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder – July 18
Fury will complete his trilogy with Deontay Wilder on July 18 in America after the beaten former champion exercised his right to an immediate rematch.
Wilder was dominated by Fury, 31, in their rematch last month, twice being floored before his assistant trainer Mark Breland threw in the towel.
Despite the one-sided beating the Bronze Bomber astonishingly insisted the 45lb ring walk costume he wore before the fight “weakened” his legs and affected his performance.
But the Alabaman – who was fortunate to earn a draw against Fury in their first fight – has vowed to win back his WBC title in the trilogy bout.
CORONAVIRUS CRISIS – BE IN THE KNOW
Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev – July 25
Britain’s WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight ring is supposed to defend his belts against Bulgarian mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev at Tottenham’s new ground on June 20.
But as coronavirus sweeps the globe, Joshua’s Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn has been in talks with the Premier League side, who are out of action until the end of April, about pushing the clash back a month.
Hearn said: “A requirement for Anthony in his next fight, a necessity for him, was to box in the UK.
“June 20 is a long time away, it’s still in our plans. We have been speaking to Tottenham and making sure that we’re all on the same page.
“For the Anthony Joshua fight, there are already potential plans to move that fight back to July.”
