All Serie A matches on Sunday have been postponed as Italian football mourns the death of Fiorentina captain Davide Astori.

Today's seven league games will be rescheduled as a mark of respect for Astori's family.

 

Fiorentina's fixture against Udinese was immediately called off, with the Italian top flight following up with the decision to cancel the day's other six games, including the Milan derby.

The first game scheduled for Sunday - between Genoa and Cagliari - was called off shortly after  the 31-year-old defender was found in his hotel room, with players learning of the tragic news on the pitch.
