The pressure on the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to postpone the Tokyo Olympic Games has increased and now the United States, Britain and New Zealand have joined countries that are seeking to postpone these games. Huh. Amidst a swell of uncertainty hanging over the Olympic Games due to the Kovid-19 pandemic, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will speak to IOC chief Thomas Bak on the telephone on Tuesday night.
