FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Just over half of Tokyo’s residents don’t think the postponed 2020 Olympics should be held next year, backing either a further delay or outright cancellation because of fears over the coronavirus, according to a poll published Monday.Tokyo 2020 became the first Olympics postponed in peacetime earlier this year as the coronavirus pandemic took holdThe survey carried out by two Japanese news organisations is only a single data point, but comes after health experts warned that even a year’s delay may not be sufficient to hold the Games safely.The poll conducted over the weekend found 51.7 percent of respondents hope the Games in 2021 are postponed again or cancelled, while 46.3 percent want to see the rescheduled Olympics go ahead.Among those opposed to a 2021 Games, 27.7 percent said they want them cancelled altogether, while 24.0 percent would prefer a second postponement.The telephone poll, conducted by Kyodo News and Tokyo MX television between June 26-28, received 1,030 replies.Of those who said they want to see the Games held next year, 31.1 percent said the event should be in a scaled-back form, including without spectators, while 15.2 percent said they wanted to see a full-blown Olympics.Tokyo 2020 was postponed in March as the coronavirus spread across the globe, causing the worst disruption to the Olympics since two editions were cancelled during World War II.The Games are now scheduled to begin on July 23, 2021, although they will still be known as the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.Officials from Japan and the International Olympic Committee have warned it will not be possible to postpone again, and even the year-long delay has created significant financial and logistical headaches.The poll, conducted ahead of the Tokyo gubernatorial election on July 5, also found incumbent Yuriko Koike leading her opponents “by a large margin”.Her precise lead was not specified, in keeping with a media tradition of not publishing polling figures in the days before a vote.

Moyes relaxed over summer dealings

first_imgDavid Moyes insists his Manchester United recruitment drive remains on track despite missing out on Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara. United had been heavily linked with the Spain Under-21 star, who seemed certain to join the Red Devils after deciding he needed to leave the Nou Camp in order to further his World Cup ambitions. Instead, Thiago’s former boss Pep Guardiola has stepped in, with the player now looking certain to join Bayern Munich. Despite the disappointment, Moyes remains resolute in his squad-building strategy. “I never said at any time he was,” said Moyes, when asked if the Spain Under-21 star remained a target. “There are people we are actively chasing and we are happy with the way things are going.” It does appear Benfica defender Ezequiel Garay has agreed to join United though, with reports claiming a transfer is imminent, although there has been no official word from either club. Moyes has his first match to focus on, against Singha All Stars on Saturday, although the subject of a departed player, Wayne Rooney, remains high on the agenda, much to the Scot’s frustration. Rooney may be back home in England, his pre-season tour ended after less than 24 hours with a grade one hamstring tear that will keep him on the sidelines for up to three weeks, but the questions about his future keep on coming. In the latest instance the trigger was a comment from Jose Mourinho, who landed in Bangkok on Friday and took even less time than Rooney was in the country to make his presence felt. Whilst, declared Jose, it was not proper to talk about the player of another club, neither was he prepared to stay silent. “You know me,” said Mourinho. “It is not in my character to speak to you with a little bit of hypocrisy. I always say what I think and, being fast and direct, I like him very much.” Moyes was weary of repeating himself over Rooney. “Unless I was speaking double Dutch, I have said ‘Wayne Rooney is not for sale’,” he said. “I have really covered all the things on Wayne.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
