Tokyo 2020 could be postponed to end of year – Japan’s Olympic minister

Japan’s Olympic minister says the Tokyo 2020 Games could be postponed from the summer until later in the year amid fears over the coronavirus outbreak. In a response to a question in Japan’s parliament, Seiko Hashimoto said Tokyo’s contract with the International Olympic Committee “calls for the Games to be held within 2020”. She added that “could be interpreted as allowing a postponement”. The Games are due to be held from 24 July to 9 August. Under the hosting agreement the right to cancel the Games remains with the International Olympic Committee. IOC president says his organisation remains “very confident with regard the success” of the Games in Tokyo.
