Trump postpones G7 summit, seeks to expand invitation list

US President Donald Trump has announced that he would postpone the Group of Seven summit that he wanted to hold in late June and expand the list of countries invited to include Australia, Russia, South Korea and India. Speaking to reporters on Air Force One during his return to Washington from Cape Canaveral in Florida, Trump said the G7 in its current format is a "very outdated group of countries". "I'm postponing it because I don't feel that as a G7 it properly represents what's going on in the world," Trump said. The decision is a dramatic pivot for Trump, who had sought to host the group of major industrialised countries in Washington as a demonstration that the United States was returning to normal after the coronavirus epidemic, which has killed more than 103,000 Americans to date. The G7 is made up of the US, Italy, Japan, Canada, France, Germany, the UK, as well as the European Union. Earlier, Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel announced that she has declined Trump's invitation to attend the G7 summit in person, while the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread around the world. Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who hosted the 2018 summit, had also said that any in-person gathering would have to prioritise safety, while a French presidential official said President Emmanuel Macron, last year's host, was "willing to go to Camp David if the health conditions allow". European Council head Charles Michel, meanwhile, said through a spokesman that he would attend "if health conditions allow".

La Liga clubs to resume full training next week

La Liga have confirmed players will be allowed to return to full training on Monday, giving them 10 days to work together before the season restarts in Spain on June 11. This is the final phase of La Liga's staggered training programme as teams get set to complete the remaining 11 rounds of the season, which will finish on July 19. European competitions, including the Champions League, could then resume in August. "La Liga clubs will start collective training on Monday, June 1," the league said in a statement on Saturday. "The fourth phase, which starts next Monday, is the last step in this protocol that will lead to clubs starting competition on June 11." La Liga president Javier Tebas has said the plan is for games to be played every day. The Spanish football federation (RFEF) gave its permission last week for matches to be staged on all days of the week. Players in Spain's top two divisions began training in groups of up to 10 from May 18 and then 14 shortly after, having initially begun working individually at training grounds from May 4. La Liga suspended fixtures due to the coronavirus pandemic on March 12, meaning the break between games stopping and restarting will be almost exactly three months. Matches will be held behind closed doors, with the Seville derby between Sevilla and Real Betis expected to be the first game back on June 11. Barcelona, who are two points clear at the top of the table, will resume away at Real Mallorca while their closest challengers Real Madrid are at home against Eibar. Madrid have the approval of La Liga to stage their remaining home games at their Valdebebas training ground to allow construction work to go ahead at the Santiago Bernabeu. All games will be played according to strict medical protocol, with players and officials undergoing tests for coronavirus the day before games and having their temperatures taken before entering stadiums. La Liga's timetable, which includes next season beginning in September, is dependent on both the trajectory of the coronavirus and continued approval of the Spanish health authorities. The Spanish health ministry reported on Friday there had been 39 deaths from coronavirus in Spain during the last week while on Thursday it confirmed there had been only one death over the previous 24 hours.
