Updates, cancellations, reschedules: Global sport

Wimbledon has been cancelled for the first time in 85 years, as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The tournament was first held in 1877 and has been contested every year since, with the exception of two stretches: from 1915-18 because of World War I, and from 1940-45 because of World War II.
