Fenerbahce basketball players and staff members showing coronavirus symptoms have been sent to hospital for tests, the Turkish team said on Saturday.

Turkey was among the last countries to suspend its sports leagues, taking the decision on Thursday amid growing pressure from clubs, players and coaches. Turkey had come under international pressure to postpone competitions after the vast majority of European soccer leagues, and others globally, shut down.
