Football news, leagues, coronavirus, Belarus, news, which leagues are still playing,

Earlier this week, sports-starved fans around the world flocked to the Belarus football league – Europe’s last remaining football competition as sport across the world shuts down.

Suddenly, a competition unknown to even the most fanatical of football supporters found itself in the global spotlight.

That was exacerbated by the grandiose declarations of the country’s dictator-like President Aleksandr Lukashenko, who labelled the coronavirus “just another psychosis”.

“The civilised world is going nuts,” he said “It is absolute stupidity to close state borders. The panic can hurt us more than the virus itself.”

His bizarre reaction also included declaring the country’s residents should keep working on farms, saying: “tough work and a tractor can cure anything.”
