First, some glum news: John Coates, head of the International Olympic Committee’s coordination commission, was quoted in The Australian on May 21 as expressing doubt over prospects for the Tokyo Olympics to be held in summer next year. Coates went on record as saying the decision on whether or not to proceed with the games in 2021 was likely to be made by October.

Meanwhile, weekly magazine Friday (June 12) dropped another bombshell, claiming to have obtained a copy of a report by an unnamed major travel agency that states the decision has already been made to cancel next year’s games.
