There is a possibility the 2020 Tokyo Olympics could be cancelled as fears of the coronavirus continues to grow in Japan.

A senior member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) said that cancellation of the event may be inevitable if the disease is proved to be too dangerous for the event.

He also mentioned that postponement or relocation would be very unlikely as there are too many moving parts for an event of this scale.
