The Premier League has suspended this weekend’s fixtures as a mark of respect after the death of Queen Elizabeth II at the age of 96.

The decision to postpone all matches from Saturday and Monday was taken after a Premier League shareholder meeting on Friday, which was held after an earlier meeting involving the British government’s Department for Culture, Media and Sport and representatives from a range of sports.

The English Football League (EFL) and Women’s Super League (WSL) have also decided to postpone their round of fixtures this weekend.

Tributes from across the sports world were made in honour of Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, who died on Thursday after 70 years on the throne.
