Tokyo Olympics postponed to 2021

The 2020 Olympic and Paralympic games have been postponed until next year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

On a day of unprecedented financial and logistical turmoil in sport, crisis talks between the International Olympic Commission and the Japanese government ended on Tuesday with an acceptance that the world's biggest multi-sports event must be postponed for the first time in its 124-yr history.

Sports and athletes are awaiting confirmation of a new date, likely to be summer 2021.
