Outdoor grassroots sport will be allowed to resume in England when the national lockdown ends.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will make a statement to the House of Commons this afternoon, outlining plans for a relaxation of restrictions from December 2.

Outdoor sport for all ages will be permitted, even in areas most affected by the Government’s Covid-19 tier system.

This will include golf courses, tennis courts and football clubs – and gyms will also be able to re-open.

Grassroots and amateur sport has been suspended since November 5.
