It comes after the executive of the British Olympic Association said Great Britain would be probably not going to send a group to Tokyo this mid year.

Australia and Canada have just said they won’t contend in Japan.

“On the basis of the information the IOC has, postponement has been decided,” Pound told USA today.

“The parameters going forward have not been determined, but the Games are not going to start on 24 July, that much I know.”

The International Olympic Committee has allowed itself a month to settle on the fate of this current summer’s Games, yet veteran IOC part Pound says a choice will be declared soon.

“It will come in stages,” he said.

“We will postpone this and begin to deal with all the ramifications of moving this, which are immense.”
