Michael Gove told LBC that the government have told Sports Direct to close.

The government yesterday announced a UK lockdown in which people should stay at home and all non-essential shops should close.

Mike Ashley was hoping to keep Sports Direct open, claiming that the selling of sports equipment was important to keep people healthy.

But speaking to LBC, Michael Gove disagreed and confirmed the stores will now not open.

Asked if Sports Direct employees were key workers, Mr Gove said: "No. I was asked earlier if Sports Direct should remain open and I said it should not.

"And I understand they will not be remaining open."
