Prince Harry has confirmed that the 2020 Invictus Games, due to take place in the Hague, have been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The plan is to hold them instead in May and June 2021.
“We are all extremely saddened that the 5th edition of the Invictus Games can no longer take place in May 2020, but we know the wait until next year will be worth it.” organisers said in a statement.
“Continue to support each other all over the world, keep the Invictus spirit alive and stay safe everyone.”
