POPULAR TV presenter Diletta Leotta recently took time out for some skiing, with Italian football having since descended into chaos because of the coronavirus epidemic.
The 28-year-old visited the Skyway Monte Bianco in the mountains – taking in the stunning views of the Alps during a well-earned holiday.
The blonde beauty smiled for the camera in the snow, wowing her 6.1million Instagram followers.
And Diletta certainly enjoyed her holiday, lapping up the winter sunshine as she took to the slopes.
But it turns out that she made the trip only just in time – with the resort having since been shut down on Monday as part of Italy’s measures to combat the coronavirus epidemic.
With 10,149 cases to date, Italy has been by far the worst-affected country in Europe.
Currently 631 people have been killed by coronavirus there – with the country now in complete lockdown to combat the spread of the disease.
A number of Serie A matches have been played behind closed doors, but games have now been postponed indefinitely after players threatened to strike if they were made to play.
Football has not been the only sport affected in Italy, with their crunch Six Nations clash with England, initially set to be played at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday, now set for October.
Some stadiums being empty might not be the worst thing in the world for Diletta, however, having previously been heckled by leering fans.
Sexist Napoli supporters earlier this season chanted “fuori le tette” at her – which roughly translates as “get your t*** out” – as she made her way past a stand at the San Paolo.
While Diletta could understandably have been fuming about the incident, instead she smiled as she rejected the supporters’ request.
Footage released online shows the reporter wagging her finger at the stand and giving a thumbs down, met by laughter from some fans near the camera.
She later laughed off the incident herself, claiming that it was just a “misunderstanding”.
