The International Olympic Committee is looking to appoint a new member for Japan soon following the departure of Japanese Olympic Committee chief Tsunekazu Takeda from the global ruling body, IOC President Thomas Bach said on Wednesday.

Takeda, who is under investigation in France for suspected corruption and will step down from his JOC role in June, ceased to be an IOC member on Tuesday after a decision by the IOC executive board. He had initially planned to leave that post in June as well.
