For the first time, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe admitted that the Tokyo Olympics might be postponed in a latter date because the sporting event cannot be held in its entirety due to the coronavirus disease or COVID-19 pandemic. 
 
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) said on Sunday after an emergency meeting that it is stepping up its “scenario planning” for the 2020 Games. The committee is looking at a possible late start on July 24 or even a postponement.

Abe said that cancelling Olympics is not an option, but delaying the sporting event is a likely scenario because of the COVID-19 threat. 
 
“If that becomes difficult, we may have no option but to consider postponing the Games,” Abe said. 
 
There has been a mounting pressure from athletes, federations and national committees to postpone the Games, but organizers are insisting that it should go ahead as planned.
