OXFORDSHIRE'S Nike store has closed due to cleaning.

The store in Bicester, which opened in January, has a sign on the front window saying 'Closed for cleaning. Sorry for the inconvenience'.

It comes as rumours started circulating on social media last night that the manager has contracted coronavirus.

But this has not been confirmed.

The Nike store is an outlet offering products at slashed prices and was welcomed by many residents when it first opened at Bicester Shopping Park.

There are currently two confirmed cases of coronavirus in Oxfordshire. 

One shopper who planned to grab bargains at the store this morning had travelled an hour only to find out it was closed.
