English Premier League side Arsenal have cancelled
their training that was scheduled for Tuesday, the club confirmed.
The Gunners were placed under self-isolation after their
manager Mikel Arteta tested positive for the coronavirus.
A statement from Arsenal read: "Our men’s first-team players
were scheduled to return to training on Tuesday after completing 14 days
isolation following Mikel Arteta's positive diagnosis for the virus.
"As a result of the current situation, we are clear it would
be inappropriate and irresponsible to ask players to come back at this time.
"Therefore, our men’s first team, women and academy players
are all remaining at home. Stay at home and save lives."
Meanwhile, the Premier League held crisis talks last week
and have concluded that all games will remain suspended until 30 April due to
the virus outbreak.
