According to the Daily Mail, the Tokyo Summer Olympics have been postponed until 2021.

Dick Pound, a member of the International Olympics Committee, has confirmed that while details are still being worked out, the games originally scheduled for this summer in Tokyo will not happen as scheduled.

With tensions mounting from nations around the world to move the event and some nations, including Canada, banning their athletes from attending, the committee didn't have much of a choice.

Pound said in regards to the postponing, 'It will come in stages. We will postpone this and begin to deal with all the ramifications of moving this, which are immense.'
