The whole footballing world has seemingly been put on hold with the recent outbreak of the coronavirus slowly but surely wreaking havoc all across the globe.
Unfortunately, Arsenal have now officially confirmed that their head coach Mikel Arteta has tested positive for the disease and as a result, the Premier League has been postponed.
Of course, with the situation seemingly getting worse by the minute and multiple leagues already cancelling all games for the foreseeable future, it’s pretty safe to say that things are getting rather serious.
But James Benge applauded Arsenal for handling the situation well, following the procedures and generally weathering the storm to the very best of their abilities.
One final thought: credit to so many people at Arsenal for dealing with the incredibly trying last few days in the excellent way they have. Not surprising to me at all but still worthy of praise.

It’s not easy and it’s bound to get even more difficult if the virus keeps on spreading but figures such as Miguel Delaney of the Independent have suggested that the likelihood of the situation would be a temporary suspension.
Either way, Arsenal are seemingly setting a good example on how to properly deal with the situation and Benge was quick to make note of it.
Arsenal fans, what do you make of the whole coronavirus situation? Should all sporting events be cancelled, including the Premier League? Let us know down in the comments below!
