Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has asked for the Tokyo Olympics to be postponed for a year during talks with organisers.

Mr Abe held talks with International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Thomas Bach on Monday and said a postponement is unavoidable if the 2020 games cannot take place this year due to measures taken to combat COVID-19, NHK television reported.

The IOC has said it will make a decision on the future of the games in the next four weeks.
