How coronavirus has turned sport upside down Behind the Headlines

    • News

On the show today Deputy Editor David Marley is joined by Melissa Reddy and Vithushan Ehantharajah from the sport's team and host of the Indy Football Podcast Luke Brown.


They look at how the spread of Covid-19 is causing havoc in the world of sport. From Wimbledon, to the Olympics, to all tiers of the football league.


Is it right to criticise multi-millionaire football players at this time? Will Tokyo be able to cope with a 12 month delay to its summer games? And what controversy has been caused by the French Open being postponed?


Also we'll give you a snippet of this week's episode of the Indy Football Podcast where Miguel Delaney talks about his exclusive story that the Premier League is considering a World Cup-style tournament to get the season finished.
