Inter's clash against struggling Sampdoria, Verona versus Cagliari, Torino's home game with Parma and a match between in-form Atalanta and Sassuolo have all been postponed.

The women's Six Nations rugby union international between Italy and Scotland, due to be played in Legnano in the Lombardy region, was also off.

Antonio Conte's Inter side, who are third in Serie A, are due to host Bulgaria's Ludogorets in the return leg of their Europa League last-32 tie on Thursday.

Serie B, Serie D and numerous youth games across Veneto and Lombardy were also cancelled.

The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) said on Sunday that it had set up a task force to analyse the situation.

There has been a growing cluster of cases in Italy with no direct links to the original outbreak in China's Hubei province.
