FIFA postpones โ€˜The Bestโ€™ awards ceremony

FIFAโ€™s The Best awards ceremony, scheduled to be held in Milan on September 21, has been postponed as a result of the coronavirus crisis, world footballโ€™s governing body confirmed on Friday.

It is unclear if or when the ceremony will be rearranged, with a FIFA spokesperson saying that โ€œthe consequences and different alternatives are being consideredโ€.

Lionel Messi and Megan Rapinoe won the best male and female prizes last year. The duo also took the honours at the 2019 Ballon dโ€™Or.

Milan and the Lombardy region have been the epicentre of Italyโ€™s coronavirus outbreak, one of the worst in Europe in terms of deaths and infections.
