It's looking increasingly more likely that this summer's Olympic Games will be postponed.
Canada and Norway are already refusing to send athletes to Tokyo for the games which are due to start on July 24.
Australian athletes have been told to prepare for the games to be held in the summer of 2021.
While the Olympic Federation of Ireland is poised to call for the games to be postponed.
The IOC have given themselves a four-week window on a decision, but are adamant the games themselves will not be cancelled outright.
