Tokyo 2020 athletes warned not to use 160,000 free condoms
- Organisers say condoms are souvenirs to take home
- Olympic athletes must ‘avoid unnecessary forms’ of contact
The organisers of the 2020 Olympics have repeatedly vowed to put on a “safe and secure” Games during the coronavirus pandemic. But safe sex – or anything approaching intimacy for that matter – will be verboten for athletes competing in Tokyo.
The International Olympic Committee [IOC] this week repeated demands that residents of the Olympic village observe social distancing guidelines to prevent an outbreak of Covid-19, threatening rule-breakers with a range of penalties, including disqualification.
