“To commemorate her extraordinary life and service to the nation, and as a mark of respect, this weekend’s round of Premier League matches will be postponed, including Monday evening’s match.

Richard Masters, Chief Executive of the Premier League, said: “We and our clubs would like to pay tribute to Her Majesty’s long and steadfast service to our country.

“As our longest-serving monarch, she has been an inspiration and leaves behind an incredible legacy after a lifetime of dedication.
