In an interview with BBC Sport, International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said he understands why the Tokyo Olympics would need to be canceled if the Games cannot be held in the summer of 2021.
Bach said Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had made it clear to him that next summer was the “last option” for the Olympics in Japan. 
In April, Abe said it would be "impossible" to hold the Olympics unless the coronavirus pandemic was contained.
"Quite frankly, I have some understanding for this, because you cannot forever employ 3,000, or 5,000, people in an organizing committee," Bach told BBC Sport.
Bach added, "You cannot every year change the entire sports schedule worldwide of all the major federations. You cannot have the athletes being in uncertainty."
In the interview, Bach also said reorganizing the Olympic games was a "mammoth task" and a scenario of holding the games behind closed doors remains as "speculation."
