International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach on Sunday said the 2020 Tokyo Olympics would not be cancelled but that a postponement was an option as the world grapples with the coronavirus pandemic.

 

“The IOC executive board emphasised that a cancellation of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 would not solve any of the problems or help anybody,” said Bach.

 

“Therefore, cancellation is not on the agenda.”

 

The IOC added that a decision on the potential scenarios for the Tokyo Games — “including the scenario of postponement”  would be made inside four weeks.
