The 25th Bond film, which will feature Daniel Craig in his final outing as 007, was set to be released in UK cinemas from 2 April this year.

It will now be released in the UK on 12 November and the US on 25 November.

The delay is the latest in a string of major events being cancelled or postponed around the world.

The London Marathon, Californian music festival Coachella and concerts around the world including BTS, Stormzy and Rage Against The Machine have all been postponed in a bid to prevent the spread of the virus.

Stars including Tom Hanks and his wife Rita have also both tested positive for coronavirus.
