Sky Sports F1 have put out a report today that the Australian F1 GP will be postponed or cancelled again arising due to severe Covid restrictions being in place once again at the start of the season. The Race Youtube channel had also submitted reports that Melbourne could be cancelled altogether. Unconfirmed reports are saying that Bahrain will host the F1 season opener on the 28th of March.

New world feed graphics for the FA Cup with a rather weird looking scorebar.

Like the cup but the use of red for the timing makes me think they're into 7 minutes of added on time at the end of the first half.

Major news out of France - Cross Border Elite Sport no longer permitted. Champions Cup Rugby, Six Nations etc all under threat

Six Nations is the easier one to solve, as France could play their home games at a neutral covid secure venue, bordering the country (Monaco or Luxembourg for instance).

Highly likely there'll be no crowds at any of this years games, so home crowd advantage won't really be an issue.

From what's being reported down here, sounds like the GP will be held late in the season, possibly the season ender

Also a lot of controversy down here with the Tennis with the quarantine arrangements, the players will be in hotel quarantine for 14 days like anyone else coming from overseas, but will be allowed to leave the hotel (under escort) for daily training. Normally, those under quarantine can't leave their rooms for the full 14 days, there is some concern down here that it could spark a 3rd wave, which is valid given that Melbourne went through a brutal 3 month lockdown last year.

Melbourne won't be the last race as Abu Dhabi has to be last due to the nature of their contract.

They’ve had these graphics since the start of the season. I suspect some inspiration has been taken from the Premier League world feed.
