Olympic champion Seiko Hashimoto new head of Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games

Japan’s Olympics minister, Seiko Hashimoto, intends to accept the job of leading the Tokyo 2020 organising committee, just five months before the delayed Games are due to open, according to media reports.

Hashimoto, who has represented Japan at seven Olympics, is expected to replace Yoshiro Mori, a former Japanese prime minister who resigned last week over derogatory remarks he made about women.
