Tokyo venues for the Summer Olympics will not have spectators.

Earlier today, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshide Suga confirmed that the pandemic-delayed Tokyo 2020 Olympics will be held in a state of emergency linked to the coronavirus.

The announcement was made following a meeting of five Olympic and Japanese government groups responsible for the Games.

Seiko Hashimoto of the Japanese Olympic Committee said: “A very harsh judgment has been passed.”

Hashimoto said that due to the pandemic, they had “no choice but to hold the Games on a limited basis.”
