After first saying it was postponed, Monaco Grand Prix organizers have confirmed the famous race will not take place in 2020.

That means along with the Acura GP of Long Beach, the two biggest street races of the year are now cancelled.

The confirmation came on the same day it was confirmed Monaco's reigning monarch, Prince Albert II, had tested positive for the coronavirus.

The ACM statement said: "The current situation concerning the worldwide pandemic and its unknown path of evolution, the lack of understanding as to the impact on the FIA F1 World Championship 2020, the uncertainty with regards to the participation of the teams, the consequences with regards to the different measures of confinement as taken by various governments worldwide, the multi-border restrictions for accessing the Principality of Monaco, the pressure on all implicated businesses, their dedicated staff who are unable to undertake the necessary installations, the availability of the indispensable workforce and volunteers (more than 1500) required for the success of the event means that the situation is no longer tenable."
