Eibar's home La Liga match against Real Sociedad on Sunday has been postponed because of "high levels of chemical compounds detected in the air" around the Ipurua Municipal Stadium.

A landfill site near Eibar collapsed on 6 February causing fires and trapping two workers, who are still missing.

The Basque government has recommended people not "perform outdoor sports activity" in nearby towns.

A new date for the game will announced by Tuesday.

Toxins 40 times the normal level for urban areas had been detected following the incident.
