Olympic. Keith Mills, vice-president of the organization responsible for planning the London Olympics, says according to the BBC that he would start planning a cancellation of the Tokyo Olympics – if it was he who was in charge. Mills sees it as unlikely that the games in July and August will take place due to the pandemic. “If I was the organizer of the Olympics in Tokyo, and fortunately I am not, then I would start planning a cancellation,” Mills says, adding, “I’m sure they have plans for a cancellation.
