Olympics could be called off

The ongoing Coronavirus epidemic is set to see the Olympics postponed, according to Bookmakers.

Japan is due to hold the games, beginning at the end of July – but with over 200 confirmed cases it now appears that there is a major question mark over whether the games go-ahead.

Paddy Power have gone odds-on that this year’s Olympics will be cancelled.

The Irish bookmakers make it 4/6 – which represents a 60% chance – for the outbreak to cancel this summer’s games in Tokyo.

While the chances of the tournament going ahead are now out at 11/10 due to the threat of Covid-19.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “More people are being infected by Coronavirus, including in Japan, and we make it odds-on for officials move to cancel the Tokyo Olympic Games.

“In fact, we see it as far more likely that they will be off, than on, at this stage.”
