Three Serie A matches called off due to coronavirus


Inter Milan’s game against Sampdoria is among 3 Serie A fixtures that have been postponed over fears of the spread of coronavirus.

The suspension also includes Verona v Cagliari and Atalanta v Sassuolo.

The action was taken as a woman from the northern region of Lombardy became the second person in Italy to die from the virus in 24 hours.

The suspension was announced by Italian prime minister Giuseppe Conte at a news conference on Saturday.

Looking to prevent the spread of the disease, the Italian government has banned public events in the worst affected areas and shut down schools and universities.
