Meanwhile, Tokyo Olympics organisers reported the first case of COVID-19 at the athletes' village, as well as 14 other new cases connected to the Games that begin next week, raising doubts over promises of a safe and secure event. 

The latest cases are a blow to the local organisers and the International Olympic Committee, who have insisted the Games will not become a spreader event.

The Tokyo organisers confirmed that a visitor from abroad working for the Olympics had tested positive in a routine check on July 16. The person's nationality was not revealed due to privacy concerns.
