Official: Genoa-Inter called off

It is now official that Sunday's Genoa-Inter game has been postponed due to flash floods in the area.

There were reports earlier today that the Serie A fixture could be called off and they were confirmed this evening.

The Mayor of Genoa, Marta Vincenzi, announced that the Lega Calcio had agreed to reschedule the match.

Heavy rainfall caused flash floods in the city, leading to seven deaths, and the bad weather is expected to continue into Sunday.

The Stadio Luigi Ferraris is in the area worst hit by the floods and there are reports the arena itself is flooded.

Genoa-Inter had been due to kick off at 11.30am UK time on Sunday.
