Global sport has been almost entirely shut down since March, but is slowly beginning to return to life.

GAA, soccer and rugby pitches around Ireland, and the world, are once again being pockmarked with training cones and bibs as teams get back to business. 

There is a host of postponed events still to be fitted in this year and, while uncertainty still surrounds many of them, it promises an unusually crowded calendar for the rest of 2020.

Here's a revised sporting calendar for June to August.
