Eight Premier League footballers or officials have now tested positive for coronavirus after an unnamed Bournemouth player was one of two new cases discovered in the latest round of tests.

The English top-flight, which hopes to restart in June, has tested 1744 players and officials.

In 1014 tests conducted at Championship clubs, two people at Hull City were the only ones to produce positive tests. Teams in the 24-club second tier are due to resume training on Monday.

Last weekend, Germany’s top two divisions became the first major European leagues to resume.

German clubs returned 10 positive results from 1,724 coronavirus tests, it was announced on 5 May. Matches resumed behind closed doors 11 days later.

Spain’s La Liga has been given the go-ahead to restart from 8 June. Five players tested positive across Spain’s top two divisions before clubs were allowed to begin individual training on 18 May.
