The pandemic has led to the postponement of major sporting events including the French Open and 2020 Olympics.

Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Tuesday confirmed that an agreement has been reached with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to postpone the Olympics for one year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Summer 2021 is the latest that these Olympics could be held,” CNN quoted Abe as saying.

“After his telephone talks with IOC President Bach, PM Abe spoke to the press and explained that the two have agreed that the Tokyo Olympic Games would not be cancelled, and the games will be held by the summer of 2021,” official handle of Japan’s PM Office tweeted.
