Football is suspended in the UK and across most of world because of the coronavirus pandemic - but the game rolls on in Belarus.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media.

The Belarusian Premier League rarely gets a mention in normal circumstances yet it is attracting attention from foreign fans as one of the few places around the globe - and the only place in Europe - where football is still being played.

On Saturday, there were six top-flight games in the eastern European country including the derby between FC Minsk and Dinamo Minsk watched by a capacity 3,000 crowd in Belarus' capital.

"It so happened that this derby was practically the only official football match on earth," read Dinamo's match report after their 3-2 defeat.
