French Sports Minister Roxana Maracineanu confirmed on Monday that France's final Six Nations rugby international game against Ireland had been postponed.

Maracineanu did not specify the new date for the game, nor whether the other final Six Nations matches had also been postponed.

French media had earlier reported on Monday that all games on the final day of rugby's Six Nations Championship on Saturday had been postponed amid fears over the coronavirus outbreak.
