TOKYO (REUTERS, AFP) – Tokyo Olympics organisers said on Saturday (July 31) they had revoked accreditation of a Games-related person or people for leaving the athletes’ village for sightseeing, a violation of measures imposed to hold the Olympics safely amid the pandemic.

“We took away accreditation as we believe going out of the athletes’ village for sightseeing is something that should not happen,” Tokyo 2020 spokesman Masa Takaya told a daily briefing.

An official from Georgia’s national Olympic committee (NOC) later said two judo silver medallists were stripped of their Tokyo 2020 accreditation for breaking coronavirus rules by leaving the Olympic Village.
