French Sports Minister Roxana Maracineanu has confirmed that France’s final Six Nations game against Ireland has been postponed.

Maracineanu did not specify the new date for the game, nor whether the other final Six Nations matches have also been postponed.

French media had earlier reported on Monday that all games on the final day of rugby’s Six Nations Championship on Saturday had been postponed amid fears over the coronavirus outbreak.

France on Sunday banned gatherings of more than 1,000 people as the death toll and number of coronavirus infections continues to rise.
