France entered a third nationwide lockdown on Saturday to contain the coronavirus spread, although professional sports have largely been spared.
An exception is cycling’s Paris-Roubaix one-day race, which has been postponed from its original April 11 slot.
“We are in discussion with them (the French Tennis Federation, which organises the event) to see if we should change the date to coincide with a possible resumption of all sports and major events,” Maracineanu told France Info radio.
Although high-level sport has been preserved, we try to limit the risks of clusters, of spreading the virus within professional sports.
