Uefa announced on Monday that it had postponed the Champions League, Europa League and women's Champions League finals, originally scheduled for May, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

European football's governing body had already postponed the competitions until further notice earlier this month.

Uefa said that "no decision has yet been made on rearranged dates".

Meanwhile, the Spanish soccer calendar has been postponed until further notice, La Liga and the Spanish soccer federation (RFEF) said in a joint statement on Monday.

All organised soccer in Spain had been postponed for two weeks due to the spread of the coronavirus but was initially due to resume on April 3.

The statement said a joint commission between the two bodies had agreed to postpone all professional soccer competitions until the Spanish government considered they could start again "without creating any health risk".

RFEF chief Luis Rubiales last week ruled out cancelling the current season, insisting the campaign would resume once the health crisis was under control. "Both the RFEF and LaLiga wish to express our greatest public gratitude to all those who are dedicating their best efforts to provide essential services to the Spanish people," added the statement.
