Cape Verde announced their withdrawal from the International Handball Federation (IHF) World Men’s Handball Championship as the tournament reached its sixth day of group stage action.
The African nation’s Group A game against Germany was cancelled after positive coronavirus tests left Cape Verde in a position where they were unable to raise a team for the fixture.
Cape Verde announced they were pulling out of the event with their remaining scheduled matches being awarded to their opponents by walkovers.
On the court, eight more matches took place in Groups E, F, G, and H, with all contests played today finishing with less than ten goals between the sides.
