France's Six Nations clash with Scotland in Paris has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak within the host's squad.
Earlier, it was announced France had suspended training ahead of the fixture at Stade de France due to a further COVID-19 case.
Tournament organisers had said 24 hours earlier that the match would still take place despite the situation developing within France's squad.
However, amid the latest development, a Six Nations spokesperson confirmed the game will not take place.
A Six Nations statement, as reported by the Guardian, read: "The Six Nations testing oversight group (TOG) met today to review the situation in the French camp.
"They unanimously recommended the postponement of the France v Scotland match. This will be ratified later today by the Six Nations Council.
"We will be working on the rescheduling of this fixture and will communicate the date in due course."
Captain Charles Ollivon, scrum-half Antoine Dupont and Brice Dulin were among the French players to have tested positive, while head coach Fabien Galthie also contracted the virus following the 15-13 win over Ireland in Dublin.
France was originally given the go-ahead to resume high-intensity training after no further positive tests were returned on Thursday (AEDT), but it remains to seen now when the fixture will be held.
Next weekend's rest period is thought to be considered a risk due to the ongoing situation within the French squad.
Les Bleus have won two out of two in the tournament so far, with Scotland following up an opening win against England at Twickenham with a home defeat to Wales.
