British and Irish Lions organisers have played down fears of next year’s tour of South Africa overlapping with the rescheduled Olympics.
The three tests with the Springboks are due to run concurrently with the Tokyo Games.
But Lions managing director Ben Calveley says the 5pm Irish kick-off times of the tests means Olympic action will be over by then.
Meanwhile, South Africa and the Lions have postponed the on-sale time of ballot tickets for the tour because of the coronavirus pandemic.
