In news that won't come as a shock to many, this year's UEFA European Championships have been postponed for one year.

The confirmation comes from an unlikely source, the Norwegian FA. It tweeted: "Uefa has decided that the Euros should be postponed until 2021. It will be played from 11 June to 11 July next year." UEFA is yet to confirm the postponement, but had announced that it would be meeting today to discuss European football's response to Covid-19.

Wembley had been due to host seven matches, including the semi-finals and final. There is some belief that UEFA might be postponing the international event in part to try to enable domestic leagues to finish during the summer. All major European leagues, including the English Premier League, are currently on hiatus.
