Barcelona announced on Friday that they have suspended all first-team activity in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The players had been in for training on Friday morning but have been sent home, following advice from the RFEF who had called on clubs to halt training.

Barcelona had already seen next week’s Champions League game called off because of coronavirus, while La Liga has also been halted for two weeks.

La Masia has already been closed for two weeks, while Barcelona B’s games have also been halted.

The situation is the same around the world with Serie A, the Premier League, Ligue 1, the MLS and many other top competitions all suspended due to the outbreak.
