All Italian matches postponed following Morosini death

This weekend's entire Italian football calendar, inlcuding week 33 of the Serie A season, has been postponed after the tragic death of Livorno's Piermario Morosini on Saturday afternoon.

The FIGC have confirmed the news with Italian football in mourning after the 25-year-old was pronounced dead on arrival at hospital after collapsing during a Serie B fixture against Pescara.

Morosini had been on-loan to the Tuscan outfit from Udinese, with his parent club due to face Inter on Saturday evening.

It had originally been thought that all fixtures would go ahead, with a minute's silence being observed at each match, but Antonello Valentini, director general of the FIGC, has confirmed that all football scheduled for this weekend will be rearranged for a later date.
