Tokyo Olympics odds-on to be cancelled

The ongoing Coronavirus epidemic means the Olympic Games is in danger of being cancelled.

The Olympics are due to take place later this year in Tokyo, Japan – starting in late July.

However, the ongoing Coronavirus crisis means there is now a real chance that the Olympics could be cancelled for the first time since 1944 when World War 2 meant they could not go ahead.

Now Japan – which has had more than 200 confirmed victims – has taken the decision to close all their public schools in March, in a bid to curtail the outbreak.

But with less than 150 days to the opening ceremony, there is now a real question mark over whether they can go ahead or not.

Bookmakers now believe that the Olympics will be cancelled, it is 4/7 – 60% probability that we don’t see the Olympics this year.

Odds on if the Tokyo Olympics take place
No – 4/7
Yes – 11/10
