Turkish authorities have postponed a football match between two major Istanbul teams, citing an unspecified threat.

The Istanbul governor's office said Sunday's Galatasaray-Fenerbahce derby was cancelled following "the assessment of serious intelligence".

The decision came a day after an Islamic State group-linked suicide bomber killed himself and four foreign tourists on Istanbul's main pedestrian street.
