UK government authorises return of live sport

The British government has approved the return of domestic competitive sport behind closed doors from June 1.

Major professional competitions have been shut down since March because of the coronavirus.

But Culture, Media and Sport Secretary Oliver Dowden, issuing the government's 'phase three' guidance, said Saturday: "The wait is over. Live British sport will shortly be back on in safe and carefully controlled environments."
