We look forward to welcoming the RideLondon again in the near future, ”said Will Norman, the head of London’s walking and cycling policy.
Hard hit Brazil is already thinking about football
08:43: In Brazil, professional football can restart the competition at the end of June, thinks Walter Feldman, the boss of the Brazilian football association CBF. “I have no doubt that we can pick up football again in June if there are good safety protocols and the health authorities are a little flexible,” said Feldman.
