United Kingdom and Norway looking for Tokyo Olympics to be postponed

Thomas Bach said they were working through many scenarios but cancellation wasn't one of them

The head of UK Athletics Nick Coward and the Norwegian Olympic Committee are the latest voices to call for this summer’s Tokyo Olympics to be postponed.

Norway believe the Games should only go ahead once the coronavirus outbreak “is under firm control” worldwide.

While Coward feels current uncertainty surrounding the Olympics and qualifier events is causing stress to athletes

Yesterday, the head of the International Olympic Committee, Thomas Bach, said they were working through many scenarios but cancellation wasn’t one of them.
