No international fans will be permitted at the delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics this summer because of concerns over the coronavirus pandemic, organisers say.

Japanese authorities told the Olympic and Paralympic committees it was “highly unlikely that entry” to the country could be guaranteed.

Organisers said the move would help ensure “a safe and secure Games for all participants and the Japanese public”.

The Games are due to begin on 23 July.
