PARIS (Reuters) - Two men's doubles players were removed from the French Open draw after testing positive for COVID-19, the French tennis federation (FFT), who organise the claycourt Grand Slam, said on Wednesday.

The FFT added that both players were in the same team but did not name them.

"Since the start of the tournament, 2,446 tests have been carried out to date on the populations of players and their entourage," the FFT said in a statement.

"This is the first time this year that the tournament management has had to remove players."
