Coronavirus threat to Olympics: Organisers will announce next week if torch relay has to be scaled back amid fears Tokyo 2020 could be CANCELLED

Japan's Olympic torch relay may be scaled back because of the coronavirus outbreak, organisers admitted today amid growing doubts about the Games.

The symbolic torch is due to arrive in Japan next month before it is taken on a 121-day journey past some of the country's most famous landmarks.

Chief executive Toshiro Muto says the relay will go ahead but admitted that 'we'd like to think about how to implement it while preventing the spread of infection, including scaling down'.
