International Olympic Committee official Dick Pound said the Tokyo Olympics is scheduled to be postponed this year due to the outbreak of Covid 19 worldwide. The IOC said on Sunday that it would take a decision within four weeks about the games to be held from July 24 to August 9. Pound believes that the IOC is considering postponing the Games as there are no plans to cancel the Games.
He said, "The decision will be taken only after talking to the Government of Japan, International Federations, National Olympic Committees. Plan B will be considered within four weeks. "The IOC spokesperson did not respond directly to Pound's comment, saying," Every IOC member is entitled to estimate the executive board's decision on its own. But it will take time to clear the picture on it. "
