Why SportPesa has cancelled Mega Jackpot- hours to kick-off

Betting firm SportPesa has announced the cancellation of its weekend’s Mega Jackpot.

The decision came after half of this weekend's French Ligue 1 football matches were postponed following a series of violent protests that have been held in major French cities over the past three weekends against a rise in fuel tax.
