STORY: Bayern Munich coached by Hansi Flick held a further training session on Wednesday (April 15) after Bundesliga clubs returned to training last week after almost a month off due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Players are still being kept at a safe distance from each other and a note on the fence of the training ground asked potential spectators to remember to keep a safety distance of 1.5 metres to each other.

Squads have been split into small groups or even pairs under strict measures to contain the spread of the new coronavirus, which has infected 130,450 and killed 3,569 people in Germany as of Thursday (April 16), according to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for infectious diseases.

Despite the resumption of training the German Football League (DFL) made it clear it was not known if or when the season would resume.

The season has been suspended until at least April 30 with the DFL due to meet next Thursdayto decide the next step.
