The Norwegian Football Federation postpones Tippeligaen fixtures out of respect for those affected by the recent attacks on the country.

The Norwegian Football Federation (NFF) has postponed this weekend's Tippeligaen fixtures following the recent attacks in the Scandinavian country.

All first and second division fixtures have been halted after the bombing of government buildings in Oslo and the mass shootings at a youth camp that left many dead or wounded on Friday.

A statement from the NFF said: "Out of respect for all of those affected by the catastrophe, the NFF have decided to postpone all scheduled matches."

At least 92 people are confirmed dead following the attacks.
