UEFA have officially postponed all major European finals due to take place this season as the coronavirus continues to spread across the continent at an alarming rate.

The organisation announced on Monday that the men's and women's Champions League finals, as well as the Europa League final, have been suspended until further notice. 

The decision comes after Spain's La Liga revealed the league had been indefinitely suspended. The league said it will not return until government advice suggests the players' health is no longer at risk. 

UEFA have already postponed Euro 2020 until next summer in a bid to buy domestic leagues time to finish their leagues. 

Here's Monday's latest statement in full from European football's governing body: 

"UEFA to rearrange showpiece fixtures due to ongoing health crisis in Europe

"As a result of the COVID-19 crisis in Europe, UEFA has today formally taken the decision to postpone the following matches, originally scheduled for May 2020:

"UEFA Women’s Champions League Final

"UEFA Europa League Final

"UEFA Champions League Final

"No decision has yet been made on rearranged dates. The working group, established last week as a result of the conference call among the stakeholders of European football, which was chaired by UEFA President, Aleksander Čeferin, will analyse the options available. The group has already begun its examination of the calendar. Announcements will be made in due course."
