TOKYO (Reuters) – Organisers of the Tokyo Olympics said all event partners, including the Japanese government and the International Olympic Committee, were “fully focused” on hosting the Games this summer in response to a report by the Times newspaper.

The Times reported on Friday that Japan’s government had privately concluded the already-delayed Tokyo Olympics will be cancelled this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
