As expected, the coronavirus has taken another victim in the sporting world.

After the conclusion of meetings between event organizers, it was officially announced earlier today that the 2020 edition of Wimbledon has been cancelled.

This marks the first time the tournament has been cancelled since World War 2

The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) confirmed the news by releasing a statement:

“Uppermost in our mind has been the health and safety of all of those who come together to make Wimbledon happen – the public in the UK and visitors from around the world, our players, guests, members, staff, volunteers, partners, contractors, and local residents – as well as our broader responsibility to society’s efforts to tackle this global challenge to our way of life”

Tennis fans will have to wait until June 2021 to see the Grand Slam event take place.

An Italian DJ has accused Conor McGregor of assault following incident last weekend

Surprise, surprise. UFC star Conor McGregor is once again in trouble with the law.

An Italian DJ known as Francesco Facchinetti has accused the Irishman of assault during an incident that took place at a luxury hotel in Rome last weekend. He has formally decided to press charges against the former two-division UFC champion.

According to reports, Facchinetti was invited by McGregor to a party at the hotel. When Facchinetti wanted to leave early, McGregor didn’t take too kindly to it, and allegedly punched him in the nose and mouth. Facchinetti sustained a concussion from the reported assault, which ultimately convinced him to take this matter to the police.

“He is dangerous…He needs to be stopped.” said Facchinetti.

UFC president Dana White has chosen to stay out of the situation until more information comes to light.

“I honestly don’t even know enough about it to comment on it…Obviously I’ve seen what you guys — you guys have seen more than me, actually, to be honest with you.” said White.

“I haven’t talked to Conor, so I don’t know what the truth is. I don’t know exactly what happened. So to comment on it, I really can’t.”
