  1. The athletes going back to school

    An athlete's career can be relentless - leaving little time to plan for a future beyond sport.

    With almost all global sport cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic, most athletes find themselves with more time at home and some are using it to focus on what they will do next.

    During the lockdown, the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA), Rugby Players’ Association (RPA) and Professional Cricketers’ Association (PCA) have noticed an increase in demand for their education and career development services.

    BBC Sport spoke to several athletes going 'back to school'.

  3. 'English football should not restart until players tested'

    The football season in England should only resume once all players have been tested for coronavirus, says the chief executive of the League Managers' Association (LMA).

    But Richard Bevan told BBC Sport "tests must be made available first" to NHS workers and patients.

    "Once that's happened, by all means let's access it in sport," he added.

    Professional football has been postponed indefinitely because of the pandemic.

    Bevan has criticised the English Football League (EFL) for failing to consult his members over an estimate that the season could be completed in 56 days once it restarts.

    This week clubs were sent a letter in which the EFL said it was "hopeful" of a conclusion in the summer months.

    Bevan described the proposed schedule as "amazingly tight", adding: "You're going to have to get the support of the coaches and managers. You do not do that by not talking to them. You do not get the end-product or working together if you just send a letter out without actually taking their advice or thoughts."

  8. 'If you try managing an apocalypse, you can’t'

    The Sun

    Premier League players will be putting their health at risk if football returns too early, as well as putting an undue burden on the NHS, says West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady.

    The Premier League is suspended indefinitely because of the coronavirus pandemic.

    Writing in her column for the Sun, Brady says the league should only return when the safety of everyone involved can be guaranteed.

    "The Premier League have said that whatever happens there will be at least a three-week return to fitness before any game is played and the season recommences," she said.

    "Each club’s medical team have a different view about if this is enough time to get properly match-fit.

    "And then what happens if games recommence and players get injured when playing? Are they sent to an already overburdened NHS hospital, as most private clinics are closed, and private hospitals repurposed?

    "How will we know if they are even fit to play and not able to spread the infection to other players?

    "We continue to work through all the questions and queries — the ifs, the buts, the maybes.

    "But one thing I know is that if you try managing an apocalypse you can’t."

  9. Post update

    The men's edition of the 2020 International Champions Cup has been cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic, organisers have confirmed.

    Relevant Sports says it is "unfeasible" for the tournament to take place given the uncertain football calendar caused by the outbreak.

    The annual pre-season tournament, which began in 2012, sees European sides play friendlies across North America, Australia, Europe and Asia.

    Planning for the women's tournament is going ahead as normal.

  10. 'Olympics will be a huge celebration'

    Here's more from Adam Peaty, who has been isolating at his home near Loughborough for the last three weeks.

    The 25-year-old believes next year’s Olympics will take on an even greater significance after the global coronavirus pandemic.

    “In a year’s time we’ll hopefully we’ll look back say we came through this and then the Olympics will be a huge celebration because sport brings people together, so next year could be something really special,” he said.

    Olympic champion Adam Peaty helped raise over £17,000 for the NHS after raffling off his Rio 2016 racing suit and cycling 100km at home this week.

    Over 620 people joined the swimmer digitally for his turbo trainer challenge, which raised over £4200.

    A raffle, to help the on going fight against Covid-19, added in excess of £13,000 for the trunks the he claimed his Olympic gold in.

    “Thank you to everyone who helped raise this,” said Peaty.

    The 50m and 100m breaststroke world record holder admits it has been “tough” to refocus after the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, but insists he felt compelled to do “something special” for the National Health Service.

    “I don’t usually have much spare time due to training and it’s hard when the main focus in your life has been moved, but it’s incomparable to the tension and pain people are going through out there right now,” Peaty told BBC Sport.

    “It’s a really bad situation for so many, with the strain on the NHS, Boris (Johnson) in hospital, nurses with bruises on their faces because of the masks and then you’re hearing there’s not enough PPE for people on the front line who are risking their lives every day,” he said.

    “I just wanted to do something to help support people and whatever money we raised was money the NHS didn’t have, so it’s a great cause.”
