Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the Tokyo Olympic Games will go ahead as planned in July, despite coronavirus concerns resulting in the postponement of sporting events.

Abe added the International Olympic Committee (IOC) would have the final decision whether Tokyo 2020 goes ahead.

"We will overcome the spread of the infection and host the Olympics without problem, as planned," Abe said.

There is a chance it will go ahead without spectators being allowed into the various sport venues. This is happening right now with the 15 day Spring Sumo Tournament in Osaka. For the first time no spectators are being admitted into the venue during the event - https://japantoday.com/category/sports/Sumo-tournament-begins-without-spectators-for-first-time-it-its-history
