FIFA’s The Best awards ceremony, scheduled to be held in Milan on September 21, has been postponed as a result of the coronavirus crisis, football’s governing body confirmed on Friday.

It is unclear if or when the ceremony will be rescheduled, with a FIFA spokesperson saying that “the consequences and different alternatives are being considered”.

Lionel Messi and Megan Rapinoe won the best male and female prizes last year. The duo also took the honours at the 2019 Ballon d’Or.

Milan and the Lombardy region have been the epicentre of Italy’s coronavirus outbreak, one of the worst in Europe in terms of deaths and infections.
