No hugs, high-fives, say Olympic organisers in games rulebook

NO socialising, no handshakes and definitely no hugs – that’s what athletes at the coronavirus-postponed Tokyo Olympics can expect this summer, according to a virus rulebook released today by organisers.

The 33-page document – the last in a series of “playbooks” drawn up in a bid to ensure the Games can go ahead safely – also warns athletes they could be kicked out of their events if they break strict anti-virus rules.
