Olympics-Games postponement consideration long overdue -German confederation

BERLIN, March 24 (Reuters) - A consultation over the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics is a step in the right direction and long overdue but athletes would have preferred a quicker decision by the International Olympic Committee, the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) said on Tuesday.

The IOC and Tokyo Games organisers are under mounting pressure to postpone the Games due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and IOC President Thomas Bach are scheduled to hold a call at 1100 GMT to discuss a delay. (Reporting by Karolos Grohmann; editing by Jason Neely)
