The Daily Mail’s Mike Keegan has revealed that Tottenham’s clash against Manchester City and the other Premier League fixtures this weekend are ‘almost certain’ to be called off after the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

Buckingham Palace announced yesterday that the Queen died, aged 96. She was the world’s oldest head of state and her passing ended the longest reign in British history.

According to The Independent, there will be 10 days of national mourning beginning today, with union flags set to be flown at half-mast on royal residences, government buildings and military establishments.

Some sporting events, including England’s test match against South Africa at the Kia Oval, have already been suspended after the news (ESPN).

Keegan has now announced that the Premier League and EFL clubs are expecting an announcement this morning on the weekend’s football fixtures.

He added that the people that he has spoken to are sure that the games will be called off as a mark of respect.

Spurs Web Opinion

We at Spurs Web would like to express our condolences to the Royal Family and all the British people at this sad news of the passing of Her Majesty, the Queen. Given the esteem in which the Royals are held by many across the country, football will be the last thing in many people’s minds at a sad time like this.
