Tokyo 2020 organisers have announced that an athlete in Japan and five Olympic workers, mostly contractors, have tested positive for coronavirus, just over a week before the opening ceremony.

The news came as eight staff at a Japanese hotel hosting Brazil’s Olympic judo team tested positive, and a staff member from Russia’s rugby sevens team was hospitalised after a positive test.
