Its been a rough few days for sports fans and punters all over the world as they watched with increasing despair the coronavirus pandemic shred the global sporting calendar to bits.
Concerns about scarce hand sanitisers and face masks have given way to a boding feeling of loss as fans and punters face the unfamiliar prospect of a sports-free weekend.
Cue plenty gnashing of teeth, wringing of hands and weeping of hot tears.
Rarely has a single event wreaked such havoc on a global scale especially in peacetime.
First, it was Serie A then the French and Spanish leagues followed suit. Across the Atlantic, the NBA called it quits after two players tested positive to the virus.
Tennis wasn’t spared as the cancellation of Indian Wells was followed by a temporary halt on all competitions on the ATP and WTA tours. Formula One wasn’t spared either.
Punters hoping to cast their nets in the Premier League and German Bundesliga had their hopes dashed as England and Germany cancelled all topflight and lower division fixtures.
Each passing moment brought more bad news as the Dutch Eredivisie, Portuguese Primera Liga, Danish Super Liga, Bulgarian Prva Liga, Croatian HNL, Cyprus First Division all joined the global blackout.
