KEIR RADNEDGE REPORTS: Two of national football federations presidents who attended the recent UEFA Congress in Amsterdam have tested positive for coronavirus.

The first was Slavisa Kokeza, head of the Serb FA, the second was Dominique Blanc, the Swiss supremo.

A statement from the Serb FA said: “Slavisa Kokeza has tested positive for COVID-19, he is under medical supervision and is feeling well.

“We wish him a speedy recovery and we hereby also appeal on all sports clubs and athletes to act responsibly in order to minimise the damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic.”

The Serb league is one of the few in Europe not to have postponed or cancelled matches, although the weekend fixtures were kicking off in empty stadiums after the government declared a crowd ban on Friday.

Businessman Kokeza, 42, has been FA president since 2016. He headed the federation’s delegation earlier this month to the annual congress of European governing body UEFA in Amsterdam.

Blanc, after testing positive, issued a message saying: “I feel pretty good right now and have only mild flu symptoms.”

The headquarters of Swiss soccer in Bern has been closed and staff who had recent contact with Blanc have received medical advice, the federation said.

UEFA is holding a meeting of all 55 national associations on Tuesday . . . by video conference.
