​West Ham ban handshakes over coronavirus fears

West Ham have banned handshakes at their training ground in an attempt to stop the coronavirus' spreading.

Hammers boss David Moyes said: "After consulting with the medical team, we have supplied all the players with hand gel to keep with them.

"We've also agreed to no shaking hands at the moment, just fist bumps. If we score tomorrow, of course they'll be able to celebrate."
