PGA Tour sees first pos­i­tive test

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - Sports -

The first player un­der the PGA Tour um­brella has tested pos­i­tive for the new coro­n­avirus af­ter re­turn­ing home to South Africa from play­ing a de­vel­op­men­tal tour event in Mex­ico.

The PGA Tour says Vic­tor Lange made his only PGA Tour Lati­noamer­ica start in the Estrella Del Mar Open in Mazat­lan, Mex­ico.

The tour said in state­ment the 26-year-old Lange re­ceived the di­ag­no­sis Tues­day night. The tour said he has no symp­toms and is ex­pected to make a full re­cov­ery while un­der quar­an­tine and med­i­cal su­per­vi­sion at his home in Jo­han­nes­burg.

For­mula 1: The iconic Monaco Grand Prix was can­celed be­cause of the coro­n­avirus out­break and two other For­mula One races were post­poned.

The Dutch GP was set to re­turn to its re-vamped Zand­voort track out­side Am­s­ter­dam to host an F1 race on May 3, for the first time since the late Niki Lauda won there in 1985. Spain was set to fol­low on May 10.

Be­cause of the lat­est post­pone­ments, the F1 sea­son can­not get un­der­way un­til June 7 at the Azer­bai­jan GP.

Soc­cer: Ma­jor League Soc­cer an­nounced that it will sus­pend its sea­son another four weeks, to May 10, a de­lay that fig­ures to push the MLS Cup into De­cem­ber.

In a one-para­graph state­ment MLS, which a week ago an­nounced a 30-day halt to the sea­son, said the break was be­ing length­ened “in ac­cor­dance with the Cen­ters for Dis­ease Con­trol and Preven­tion’s guid­ance to post­pone events in­volv­ing more than 50 peo­ple over the next eight weeks.”

English soc­cer au­thor­i­ties reached an un­prece­dented agree­ment to ex­tend the sea­son “in­def­i­nitely” in an ef­fort to com­plete all com­pe­ti­tions dis­rupted by the virus out­break.

As well as an­nounc­ing that the pro­fes­sional game in Eng­land will re­main sus­pended un­til at least April 30, the Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion and the Premier League said it was waiv­ing a reg­u­la­tion which dic­tates that the do­mes­tic sea­son has to fin­ish by June 1.
