I have spoken to a number of sports governing bodies to ensure they are aware of the latest position from Government and guidance from the health authorities.

We will continue this dialogue and update the relevant stakeholders immediately should advice from the public health authorities change at any point and I know my counterparts in devolved authorities have similarly close engagement. Anyone wishing to travel to Azerbaijan or Italy should consult the foreign travel advice provided by the FCO.
