Other Sports: Olympics-Tokyo 2020 bans alcoholic beverages at venues


TOKYO (Reuters) – Alcoholic beverages will be banned at the Olympics, Tokyo 2020 President Seiko Hashimoto said on Wednesday, adding that the decision was made in the interest of removing the public’s concern over a “safe and secure” Games.

In a news conference, Hashimoto said Games sponsor Asahi Breweries had agreed with the organisers’ decision.
