CHINA: China have pulled out of this year’s Davis Cup due to travel restrictions imposed amid the spread of the coronavirus. The Chinese team had been due to face Romania in a World Group I play-off on March 6-7, but they have forfeited the match.

Their withdrawal was announced by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) on Tuesday. The city of Piatra Neamt, in northern Romania, had been due to stage the fixture.
 
The coronavirus – officially named Covid-19 – has caused a host of sporting events in China and Asia to be postponed or cancelled. Notably, China has seen over 70,000 confirmed cases during its outbreak, with the death toll rising above 1,800 victims.
