The announcement comes after the multi-sport Asian Games scheduled to take place in the Chinese city of Hangzhou in September were postponed on Friday due to a resurgence in Covid infections in several parts of the country, including Shanghai.

“The Wanda Diamond League has announced that due to travel restrictions and strict quarantine requirements currently in place for entry into China, the Diamond League meetings in Shanghai (30 July) and Shenzhen (6 August) will not take place this year,” organisers said in a statement.
