IOC's Coates says Olympics will happen regardless of Tokyo state of emergency

TOKYO, May 21 (Reuters) - The Olympic Games will still be held even if the host city Tokyo remains under its COVID-19 state of emergency, an International Olympic Committee (IOC) vice president said on Friday.

John Coates, who is in charge of the IOC’s Games preparations, told a news conference that organizers would get on with their job and make the event safe for everyone even if public opinion in Japan towards the Games did not improve.
