Black men and women are nearly twice as likely to die with coronavirus as white people in England and Wales, according to the Office for National Statistics.

Big J R - This was what got me, how did the Office for National Statistics come to that conclusion

The other 'astounding' figure in yesterday 'Times' was that one quarter of all UK Virus deaths were diabetics

Smallholder - Fourteen posts and counting, keep it up. I actually find the Office for National Statistics 'findings', where they state that 'black men and women are nearly twice as likely to die with Coronavirus as white people in England and Wales', racist.

Sport returns: From Monday 1 June competitive sport allowed behind closed doors

Domestic competitive sport behind closed doors will be allowed from Monday, the UK government says.

The 'phase three' guidance paves the way for live sport to return on 1 June for the first time since mid-March.

It is up to individual sports to assess the risk, and consult athletes, coaches and support staff.

Horse racing and snooker will each resume competitive action on Monday, while the Premier League is due to restart on 17 June.

Clubs in England's top flight returned to 'phase two' contact training on 25 May.

On Saturday, the Premier League confirmed that no players or staff tested positive from the latest batch of 1,130 coronavirus tests conducted on Thursday and Friday. So far, 12 people have tested positive from 3,882 tests across the league.

"The wait is over. Live British sport will shortly be back on in safe and carefully controlled environments," said the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Oliver Dowden.

"This guidance provides the safe framework for sports to resume competitions behind closed doors. It is now up to individual sports to confirm they can meet these protocols and decide when it's right for them to restart."

Speaking at the daily UK Government coronavirus briefing, Dowden added: "Football, tennis, horse racing, Formula 1, cricket, golf, rugby, snooker and others are all set to return to our screens shortly."

The key protocols that must be adhered to:

  • All competition delivery partners and user groups involved, from the teams and athletes, to the support staff, officials and media, must travel individually and by private transport where possible
  • Prior to entering the competition venue, they are expected to carry out a screening process for coronavirus symptoms. Anyone with known or suspected Covid-19 will not be permitted to enter and should be placed, or remain, in isolation
  • Social distancing should be maintained by all groups where possible. This includes the competing athletes and support staff on the bench and field of play, such as during any disputes between players and referees, or scoring celebrations
  • Dressing room usage should be minimised. However, showers can be used
  • Competition delivery partners and elite sports organisations should appoint a named Covid-19 officer to be responsible for oversight of all planning and communications

Premier League chief executive Richard Masters "welcomed" the decision, adding: "We have provisionally planned to restart the Premier League on 17 June, but there is still much work to be done to ensure the safety of everyone involved.

"If all goes well, we will be thrilled to resume the 2019-20 season in just over two weeks' time."

Four Premier League games will be broadcast, free to air, live on BBC Sport when the season resumes.

With concerns between Premier League clubs wanting to play at their own stadiums, and police forces requesting neutral venues, Dowden said the police and local authorities will determine where matches will be played.

Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, the UK's deputy chief medical officer, said fans congregating outside stadiums as football returns is "clearly a police matter".

"There has to be enough understanding that the venue can cope with the segregation and the organisation and the social distancing right up from the kick-off until the final whistle to make that the safest possible experience for everybody there," he said.

"And that's going to be a crucial factor in choosing these venues."

The government also announced that people in England will be able to exercise outside with up to five others from different households from Monday, provided that social distancing guidelines are followed.

This means people who play team sports can meet to train together and do things like conditioning or fitness sessions, although physical contact is not allowed.

It will also allow parents to accompany their children to coaching sessions carried out on a one-to-one basis or in small groups.

The updated public guidance will be published on Monday.

Premier League clubs set for friendlies after being given go-ahead

The Premier League has given clubs permission to play friendly matches, with strict restrictions, before the restart on 17 June.

Top-flight sides made requests to face other teams in preparation for the league's return, which was accepted, according to the Telegraph.

Premier League leaders Liverpool held an 11-a-side game in training at Anfield on Monday.

Friendlies can be played at either stadiums or training grounds.

However, the Premier League has outlined a number of conditions such as negative Covid-19 tests being returned by players involved.

Measures have also been put in place ensure hygiene and social distancing rules are adhered to which include:

  • Clubs being forbidden from travelling for further than 90 minutes, though teams like Newcastle will be granted special dispensation if they have to travel further.
  • All players must travel in their own cars, possibly in their kits.
  • No official referees will be allowed, with members of coaching staff taking charge.
  • Full risk-assessments of the stadium/training ground before games.

Championship clubs have reportedly already been approached about games and BBC Sport understands that the EFL will issue guidance to clubs on this later in the week.

Upon the resumption, some games could take place at neutral venues and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp told BBC Radio 5 Live he "would love" to play their home games at Anfield.

"We will not have the help from the crowd but no team will have that so where is the advantage? Whoever we play it is the same situation which is why I'm not too worried about it," said Klopp.

"We have tried to simulate the situation by training in the stadium and getting used to it."
