The president of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics organising committee, Yoshiro Mori, will resign over a sexist remark that sparked an outcry, two sources said today, while the former prime minister said he could not let the controversy drag on. Mori’s resignation would be bound to raise new doubts over the viability of holding the postponed Games this year. The sources said Mori would be replaced by former Japan Football Association president and mayor of the Olympic village, Saburo Kawabuchi, aged 84.
