On May 25, unarmed African-American George Floyd was killed in police custody after a Minneapolis officer kneeled on the handcuffed man's neck for nearly nine minutes.

MLS is holding a tournament for the league's 26 teams - one team has had to drop out - as it returns to action. The viral video of that incident - and other like it in recent months - has sparked ongoing worldwide protests against police brutality and systemic racism.

"The performance of everyone was handsome".

Orlando City won the match 2-1 on a goal by Nani in second-half stoppage time.

Floyd died after being pinned to the floor by a police officer who knelt on his neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds. In addition, any individual who came within six feet of the player for more than 10 minutes will be tested but will be allowed to continue to work and train as normal as long as he or she wears a face mask at all times.
