UEFA Champions League, Euros and the Olympics, apart from World Cup qualification fixtures and the Italian Serie A, sent out a message to the people of Dubai and the residents of the UAE on staying at home, staying safe and staying fit during these testing times.

"Salam walekum, dear friends in Dubai and UAE. It is a very difficult time for all of us. To be safe, we must stay home. And we must take some time to do some home work out. Be fit and be safe," Collina said in a video message.
