Olympic chief Thomas Bach on Wednesday held a series of talks with International Olympic Committee (IOC) members on the potential consequences of the coronavirus pandemic that has seen the Tokyo Games pushed back a year to 2021, sources said.
Bach was to address the 100 IOC members in three different sessions decided by language and local time zone.
"The IOC held today a series of internal consultations with IOC members to hear from them in preparation of the IOC Session which will be prepared by the IOC executive board in its meeting on June 10, 2020," said an IOC statement later Wednesday.
Bach's aim was to canvas the members for their view on "how to handle the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic", a source told AFP.
