The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) are to request that Euro 2020 be postponed amid the escalating coronavirus pandemic, FIGC president Gabriele Gravina said on Monday. Italian FA president Gabriele Gravina wants Euro 2020 postponed European football’s governing body and tournament organisers UEFA will hold a video-conference on Tuesday to discuss domestic and competitions across the continent, as well as Euro 2020, which is due to take place from June 12 to July 12. Italy are set to host the opening match in Rome on June 12, in a tournament which will be played in 12 countries across Europe. “We will ask for an act of responsibility from UEFA and all the continental federations,” Gravina told Italian radio. “First of all for a path that aims to protect the health of athletes and fans from all over the world, even if the epicentre of the pandemic is now in Europe. “I hope that tomorrow common sense proposals will come out. Postponement is the way forward right now.” All sport in Italy has been suspended until April 3 with the country in lockdown to avoid the spread of the virus which has killed 1,809 people and infected more than 24,000.

Press Association Fathuaer, seeking his first ever win, signed a blemish-free scorecard to go to 16 under overall, putting him one shot ahead of Jason Bohn, who is two shots clear of a four-way tie for third. Fathuaer has never gone into a final round inside the top 10 before, and said he would endeavour not to change his approach. Derek Fathauer will go into the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a one-shot lead after a second consecutive round of 66 on Saturday. “The scores that this course puts up, I don’t think it matters being in the lead out here,” Fathauer said on the PGA Tour website. “I mean, if I had a 10-shot lead, that would be one thing, but one shot, that’s an even playing field tomorrow. “I think if I just go out and do what I came here to do, I’d like to see where it puts me at the end of the day because if I just stick to my plan, I’ll be happy no matter what happens.” Bohn went round in 65, making an eagle on the par-five 13th but then dropping a shot on the 18th that cost him a share of the lead. Still, it was enough to keep him clear of Justin Leonard, Russell Knox, Harold Varner III and Graeme McDowell, who sit at 13 under. McDowell held the overnight lead but instantly hit trouble with a double bogey on the first and a bogey at the second. He rebounded with birdies on the fifth, sixth, 10th and 11th but dropped another shot on the 13th before a birdie on the 17th.
