Athletes banned from group training as Italy extends lockdown

Italian footballers and athletes will not be allowed to train together as Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced on Wednesday the extension of the country’s lockdown until April 13.

All sport in Italy had been suspended from early March until April 3 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic which has killed 13 115 people in the country.

Conte said in a televised address to the nation on Wednesday that the lockdown would be extended and would now also include training sessions.
