The head of the International Olympic Committee says the postponed Tokyo Olympics will go ahead as scheduled this summer.
Speaking during a video interview with Kyodo News Agency on Thursday, Thomas Bach also stressed there's no reason to believe the Games will not open on July 23rd.
Bach added that there is no plan B, and the IOC is fully committed to ensure the event will be safe and successful.
The remarks follow reports suggesting the Games may not go ahead as scheduled given the resurgence of COVID-19 in Japan.
