South Wales’ measles outbreak has prompted Swansea City to immunize all of their players.

The Liberty Stadium falls in the outbreak zone forcing the club to have the entire playing squad as well as coaching staff and officials inoculated to avoid contracting the viral infection.

"Given that the club is in the outbreak zone, we had a thorough check of which players had not received their second jabs,” said a club spokesman.

"We're not in a position to say who or how many received the inoculation, but I can confirm that all players and officials in the club are now up to date.

"Similar measures have been rolled out to youth players and letters have also been sent out to parents reminding them of the situation."
