    Jockey Frankie Dettori has said that his mother, who is over 70, in Italy has had to be "very careful" with the coronavirus outbreak in the country.

    Italy imposed a strict and lengthy lockdown on 7 March - initially in the north, then nationwide.

    With 33,000 deaths, it has suffered the third highest number of fatalities by country - behind the US and UK.

    Dettori, who lives near Newmarket in Suffolk, said his mother, father and sister were in Milan, where he was born and "fingers crossed they have been very lucky".

    Travel between regions and to and from the country will be allowed from 3 June.

    He said: "I know it's frustrating for everyone, but Italy seems to be coming out of it at the moment.

    "I think we are just two weeks behind them so hopefully, very soon, we will be able to lead a normal life and we will get the crowds back to the sport."
