Tokyo 2020 president Yoshiro Mori says the Olympic Games -- already postponed to 2021 -- will be "scrapped" if they can't take place next year, according to an interview published today. With the coronavirus pandemic's worldwide infection rate climbing and experts suggesting a vaccine is still a long way off, questions are being asked about whether the Olympics might need to be delayed further. "No. In that case, the Olympics will be scrapped," Yoshiro Mori said in the interview with Japanese sports daily Nikkan Sports, when asked if the Games could be postponed again until 2022.
