NEWS OF THE WEEK: Eric Clapton postpones concerts after testing positive for Covid-19

A statement on Clapton's Facebook posted on Monday revealed the guitarist had contracted Covid-19 after his second performance at London's Royal Albert Hall on 8 May. Clapton postponed his Zurich show on Tuesday and Milan gig on Wednesday "after intensive internal discussion", the statement reads. "(Eric) has been told by his medical advisors that if he were to resume travelling and performing too soon, it could substantially delay his full recovery. Eric is also anxious to avoid passing on any infection to any of his band, crew, promoters, their staff and of course, the fans,",
