Coronavirus threatens Tokyo Olympics

The state of play: Longtime International Olympic Committee member Dick Pound estimates that the IOC has until late May to decide if the Olympics can go forward as scheduled.

“You just don’t postpone something on the size and scale of the Olympics. There’s so many moving parts, so many countries … You can’t just say, we’ll do it in October.”
