“The message I want to deliver in Tokyo and to Japan and to the Japanese people is that we are fully committed to the safe organisation of the Games,” he said.
“These Games will happen in a safe environment, and for this we are undertaking all efforts.
“This, we hope, will help to change some people’s minds. We are discussing how we will manage this environment and there is a huge, huge toolbox already underway.
“I can and will not go into the details, but this is starting from travel restrictions, immigraiton, quarantine, rapid testing to vaccination to social distancing, you name it.
“This will give confidence to the participants but also to our gracious Japanese hosts that these Games will offer a safe environment for everybody, and also for the hosts.”
