Olympics: As case numbers continue to spike in Japan, the country has declared a State of Emergency which will mean the Tokyo Games need to be held behind closed doors. The organisers have also had a tick of approval from Australian Olyroos coach Graham Arnold, who lauded the extreme efforts being made “to reconnect the world”. Movement of athletes and officials are carefully monitored and they have been threatened with deportation to ensure they only travel on approved transport between the Olympic village and venues. So far an Ugandan coach and a boxer have tested positive to the delta variant upon arrival in Japan. A small contingent of Australian athletes are already in Japan training for the Games, including the Olyroos, some gymnasts, the softball team and some sailors.
