- Emergency meeting called on Friday to discuss sport schedule
- Test match with South Africa paused and could be cancelled
Sport will hold a day of mourning for the Queen on Friday, with the third Test between England and South Africa and the PGA championship at Wentworth among the events to be paused for at least a day as a mark of respect.
All Football League fixtures on Friday and the third day of racing’s St Leger festival at Doncaster have also been called off, while the RFU will announce in the morning whether Bristol v Bath and Sale v Northampton will go ahead. However, rugby league’s Super League elimination playoff between Catalans and Leeds will still take place as it is in Perpignan.
