Sporting events in Britain scheduled for Friday, including Test cricket and European golf’s PGA Championship, have been canceled as a mark of respect following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

British horse racing chiefs also suspended their forthcoming event as tributes poured in for the late British monarch from across the sporting world.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said Friday’s play between England and South Africa in the third Test at the Oval would not take place.

Manchester United’s home clash in the Europa League against Real Sociedad went ahead but a minute’s silence was held before kick-off and players wore black armbands.

The English Football League announced the postponement of Friday’s two scheduled matches, adding a determination regarding the remainder of this weekend’s scheduled fixtures will be made following a review of the official mourning guidance.
