International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach will travel to Tokyo again to attend the opening ceremony of the Paralympics, multiple sources said Wednesday.

Bach is likely to arrive Monday, the day before the opening event at the National Stadium, according to the sources. The 67-year-old left Japan after the July 23-Aug. 8 Olympics, but only after stoking fury among some members of the public for a visit to Tokyo’s upscale Ginza shopping district despite a coronavirus emergency being in force in the capital.
