Coronavirus has seen all sporting activity in Ireland cancelled and finally, in recent days, the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics.
A number of countries had called for the decision to be taken but the Japanese authorities had up until yesterday indicated that they were planning on proceeding as planned.
The decision means it’s the first time since WWII that an Olympic Games hasn’t gone ahead as scheduled.
It’s been welcomed in many corners and Ballyvaughan slalom canoeist Liam Jegou joined us on Morning Focus to discuss.
Liam was the first member of Team Ireland to qualify for the games.
